    It Has Its Own Appeal...

    I recently say down to read "Love Your Heart" written by Tim McGraw & Thomas Douglas. I have to say the most appealing thing about this book was the illustrations by Abigail Marble. This is probably some of the best illustrating I have seen in a children's book.

    The story is sweet, but scattered. The father expresses his love for his daughter who basically has a heart of gold. It wasn't exactly an easy-to-follow story. I read it to my 6 year old daughter, who didn't seem interested. I also had my 13 year old daughter read it. My 13 year old daughter told me she enjoyed the book, and has picked it up several times since. She seemed to like the various colorful and curvy print throughout, the moral, and the illustrations.

    Now for my opinion. I REALLY wanted to like this book because... well, it had Tim McGraw's name on it. The curiosity was killing me, so I was so happy when the book arrived. My favorite features of this book were the large size, and the raised letters on the bold and beautifully illustrated cover. I found the story to be sort of choppy and hard to read full sentences without pausing slightly. Some sentences were long and completed on a single line, while others were short and broke up on two lines. At least that's how it seemed while I was reading it. The print changes to various sizes and colors. Sometimes it fit, and sometimes it didn't.

    Overall, I have to say that the book is different. Would I purchase a future book written by Tim McGaw & Tom Douglas? Probably not. My daughter enjoyed it, so maybe yours would too. If you haven't read a book by these authors before, I recommend checking it out. It has its own appeal.

    A Sweet Book With a Good Message

    This is a book about a little girl who is trying to decide what she should do for the upcoming talent show. In the end, the girl chooses to make a sacrifice to help a friend and her father tells her that of all her many talents and abilities, he loves her heart most of all. It's a sweet book with pretty pictures and a positive message. It isn't the Velveteen Rabbit by a long stretch, but it's a good book all the same. The forty-year-old reading the book struggled a little with the logic flow of the story, but the six-year-old who was more likely a member of the target reading audience than her mother didn't seem to see the same problems. I guess this would be one of those instances where my husband would need to remind me, "It's just a book/movie/TV show/Geico commercial. It's supposed to be fun." From that perspective, I enjoyed the satisfaction my daughter received from the book. I like that the book features a strong father who loves and is supportive of his daughter. My daughter is blessed to have a dad like that in her life and I like to find books that portray men as strong and loving.
