What this world needs is more love!! Let’s start by teaching this to our children and grandchildren. Dallas Clayton hits it right on with this book. Every single living soul that has a breath in them should own this book. This book is so perfect for kids and grown-up kids too! I love to give gift books to my friends and family for special occasions and this is one of those books that is perfect for any holiday or simply not needing a reason. “An Awesome Book of Love!” is our second Dallas Clayton “Awesome” book! We hope it’s not our last.

First page of the book got Miles’ attention. It has a dinosaur and I think that’s all it took for him! He was glued. “If I was a dinosaur and you were a jet there’s a chance, a good chance, that we’d never met.”

Some of the cute quotes in this book: “if you were a Wednesday and I was a Monday”… “We might have never gotten together at all”…. “that spirit inside you is truly astounding.” How much more wonderful is it to share with a child the simple subject of love. Let’s all just spread some love around!

Miles favorite page is the one that says “I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU!” in huge colorful letters. There are actually several of them.  The art is super fun and creative. You even have to turn the book to see some of the pages because it changes direction. This book is full of awesomeness! The title says it all and all I know is we are buying this book for a friend of Miles’ birthday coming in the next few weeks. I am in love with this book and so is Miles. 

At the end it has a picture of Dallas and says “Dallas Clayton is a writer illustrator and creator of all things good!” and that is FOR SURE!

I hope the one reading this review will have joy of owning this AWESOME book, “An Awesome Book of Love!” by Dallas Clayton!
