Unwrapping Some Illustrations 

The Book

This is a wonderful sequel to "Love Grows Everywhere" and is the author's second book on the subject of love.  He highlights another venue where love can be transmitted... through baking, cooking and sharing food.  Sounds very good ( and yummy )  to me! 

A boy and his beloved grandmother team up to have a baking "date. " They are partaking in a neighbourhood bake-off in their community.  The book points out how little acts of kindness can spread care and love not only from person to person but weave its way throughout an entire neighbourhood. The book is a celebration of love and its powerful impact when utilized. 

Kindness can be shown in the simplest of things such as a smile or even a hug, both are free and both are priceless giveaways.  

The bright detailed illustrations greatly enrich the storyline and invites the reader to celebrate too.  This heartwarming book lends itself to be shared aloud and contains an important life lesson.  I love the book and highly recommend it.

Barry can often be found with pencil in hand, writing or drawing, or both. Most exciting of all is putting words and images together, and the surprising results that can happen.
