This book is about a little boy and his twin sister's birthday. The two kids, and their friends, go to a pet emporium where they have fun visiting with all kind of animals and await their "perfect pet pal" match up. Peyton is worried that their isn't a perfect pet for him. The owner of the pet emporium, Mr. Chapman, tells the kids how to find the perfect pet pal by using the 5 love languages: Quality time, Words of Affirmation, Gifts, Physical Touch, and Acts of Service. Each child is matched up with their perfect pet pal. To find out which pet Peyton is matched up with you will have to read the book for yourself.
This book combines two of my kids favorite things: animals and finding hidden pictures.The Pet Emporium is like a zoo, pet shop, farm and aquarium all rolled into one. All my children ages 7-13 love animals; so they were excited to see all the different animals featured in this book. The author also included hidden pictures(find the insects etc...) throughout this beautifully illustrated picture book. As a parent I loved the explanation of the 5 love languages; it helps children recognize their own gifts as well as the gift of others.
