I am always eager to read and review kids' books. Especially when those books have cute titles and covers. I was excited to read and review You're My Little Sweet Pea and I was drawn in by the look of this book.

You're My Little Sweet Pea Boardbook  -     Illustrated By: Kit Chase

The illustrations:

I like all of the pictures in this book. I like the cute little animals that are part of the book.

Who This Book is For:

This book seems appropriate for babies and toddlers, and preschool aged kids might like it, too.

What I liked:

The "story" of this book is pretty sweet. It shares the love that a parent has for their child.

I love the pictures in this book.

I love the size and shape and feel of this book.

What I didn’t like:

There is just something about this book that doesn't work for me. It feels like a parent would have made it up on the fly for their child at night. It is not a carefully written book that all kids/parents are going to connect with and love.

There isn't anything Christian in this book, even though it does come from ZonderKidz.

My conclusion:

Overall, I like this book but I don't love it.

I give You're My Little Sweet Pea 4 out of 5 stars.

I received this book free to review from BookLook. The opinions expressed in this review are my true thoughts and feeling regarding this book. I am disclosing this information in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

Who This Book is For:

This is a good book for babies through school aged kids.

What I liked:

The pictures in this book are cute and colorful and fun to look at.

I like the size and shape of this book.

The story of this book is a positive one and one that I thought was really sweet.

This book reads well.

What I didn’t like:

There is a part of the book where the younger bunny in the book happens to call the older bunny "mom" and I wish that part wouldn't have been included so that the book could work for dads and aunts and uncles, too. Without that part, it would be pretty generic.

There isn't anything Christian in this book, even though it does come from ZonderKidz.

My conclusion:

Overall, I really like this book and think it is sweet.

I give I Love You, Funny Bunny 5 out of 5 stars.
