Así comienza el viaje en El amor es bondadoso, escrito por la exitosa autora Laura Sassi e ilustrado por Lison Chaperon. Esta conmovedora historia sobre el Pequeño Búho y su búsqueda para comprarle a su abuelita una caja de chocolates con forma de corazón para su cumpleaños se basa en el verdadero significado del amor como se describe en 1 Corintios 13. Se cuenta en prosa simple, aunque el Pequeño Búho se ve frustrado a cada paso, este sincero y encantador libro ilustrado es, en última instancia, un dulce recordatorio de que el verdadero amor no se encuentra en una caja, incluso en una llena de chocolates.
El amor es bondadoso tiene un enfoque entretenido y gentil para enseñar a los niños el verdadero significado del amor, mientras celebra los vínculos que los niños tienen con sus abuelos.
El pequeño búho tintineó las monedas en su bolsillo. Era el cumpleaños de Abuelita. Y, finalmente, tenía suficiente dinero para comprarle algo especial: una caja de chocolates en forma de corazón".
Little Ewe would rather jump on logs and investigate spider webs than follow the shepherd when he calls. But what happens when she gets lost? How will she find her way home?
