Add it to your Goodreads TBR!
In the daily rush to get to school and work, check the alerts on our phones, worry about scary monsters (AAAHHHH!), and keep up with our favorite shows, it can be easy to lose sight of the most important thing in life―love.
But from kindly crossing guards to thoughtful neighbors to our closest friends and family, love is everywhere. It’s in the smell of Mom’s freshly baked croissants. It’s in the wag of a dog’s tail. It’s in a teacher’s warm greeting at the schoolhouse. And it’s in a goodbye kiss from Dad as he makes his way to work.
When the world sometimes feels uncertain and the sky feels gray, just look around and notice how love can melt your worries away.
My Rating: 5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I was granted complimentary access to What I See is Love by Gabriella Fiorletta as part of my participation in a blog tour for this title with iRead Book Tours. Thank you to all involved in affording me this opportunity! My thoughts are my own and my review is honest.
What I See is Love is a sweet story about a little girl, based on the author’s daughter, taking the reader through a normal day for her. At every point along the way she points out where she sees love, like when breakfast is waiting for her in the morning or when she and her classmates modify their game to include a disabled classmate. It’s cute, it sends a wonderful message, and it’s so beautifully illustrated. I love the diversity included in the illustrations, too.
This is a great book for teaching kids about the different kinds of love and the different ways we show love to one another. If I had a printed copy, I’m sure my own daughter would have claimed it by now and we would have read it for bedtime several times over.
About the Author
Gabriella Fiorletta studied English literature at the University of South Florida. She is a former teacher, guidance counselor, and stay-at-home mom. When she is not reading a book to her three young children, you can find her enjoying the beaches of sunny Florida, cooking her favorite Italian meals, or planning her family’s next RV adventure. Writing a children’s book has been a dream of hers since she was a little girl. One night when she was tucking her daughter Charlotte into bed, she pointed to her mom’s heirloom necklace and said, “Mom, when I look at you, I see love.” With that, the foundation of Gabriella’s first children’s book was laid.
