A red heart sends a message
that says "I so love you,"
but we can send those same words
in what we say and do.
If I see someone crying
or looking very sad,
I'll stop to show some kindness
and he won't feel so bad.

Parents will enjoy reading this book on Valentines Day or any day of the year to encourage their children to remember that love is more than gifts and candy; its about doing for others and sending love to everyone whos near.

The storyline involves cute animals embarking on a train driven by a polar bear carrying a mailbag stuffed with love letters. In each page, the polar bear narrates how to show love to each character troubled in different circumstances such as anger, sadness, or loneliness. The underlying message is that when we show God's love to others, we will grow to understand and cherish God's love for us also. This short book is constructed with sturdy cardboard allowing little fingers to easily flip through the pages. Although the words may be harder for toddlers, parents and caregivers can read with them and use this book as a tool to discuss how love can be shown in everyday life.
I would recommend this book to young children ranging from two to five years old who will likely enjoy the eye-catching artwork and simple storyline. Moreover, the various scenarios are commonplace thereby allowing children to see how their actions and words can display God's love to those who are hurting. It is imperative for kids to learn early on that the love we experience from God is a love that needs to be given to be truly received.

Just in time for Valentines Day, it would make a special treat, perhaps along with a chocolate kiss, to say how very special and loved they are. Saying I love you is one way to express love. But finding someone whos alone, sad, angry or worried, and showing love for them through kindness, can sometimes mean more than just words. Colorful and cute animal illustrations. If youre not familiar with Corinna Ices work, do a search online. Shes a great illustrator for childrens books.
A sweet bear delivers a read heart message that says I love you so much. This book emphasizes that showing love is more than just receiving a sweet treat. Its sharing Gods love from within to those around us. And it covers not only finding those in need and helping others but also in forgiveness. The message is one that I find important to share with my kids as theyve grown: changing the me attitude to a you or others attitude.
The book is a picture board book (like pressed cardboard) but isnt as sturdy as other board books Ive reviewed in the past. It would be fine for toddlers and early readers, but may not hold up to teething babies who love to chew on book corners. So watch out for that while reading and maybe give them a teething ring during story time. This book would make a nice addition to a childs home library and a nice gift on Valentines day. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest opinion.

With Love From Me to You is a hard covered board book written by Mary Mans Simon. The book is beautifully illustrated by Corinna Ice, who uses her heart and brush to paint the world. This is one of the cutest little books! The Polar Bear mailman is driving a train and delivering letters with red hearts to the little animals in the story. The story helps teach little children the lesson of showing others that they love them. Children can show others kindness by saying hi, by showing kindness to some one who is crying and to remind some one who is angry, that God loves them. Children can give kindness every day of the year to those far and near. And when they get a blessing, they know that God loves them.
This is a very cute book for little children. I just love the pictures in this book. They are so cute and colorful. Little children will enjoy picking out the different little animals and following the train through the story. They will also enjoy finding all the hearts in the pictures. With just 18 pages, it is the perfect length to hold a little one's attention
This easy to read story for the early reader. Written in rhyme, it will be fun to read to little children. This is a very durable book that will last a long time. The cover and pages are shiny to help keep it clean.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher from BookLook Bloggers. This is my honest review.
