Little Kid Reaction
S/He was very interested in reading this for about a week. Our preschooler liked the colorful drawings … and kept asking about everyone's name.
Big Kid Reaction
The concept is great, but it is not much different than reading one of the "Love is" collections we had as kids. We tired of it more quickly than our preschooler.
Pros:

The pages are colorful and the illustrations are simply presented. Perfect for the target audience.

Cons:

The single-sentence-per-page narrative gets old, fast.
