  A Perfect Pet for Peyton is such a wonderful book. It not only tells a wonderful story, but on each page you have search and find pictures. Like find all of the insects on this page or find all of the animals. This will really help your child become more observant.
This book is about Peyton and Penny as they celebrate their birthdays and go to a special place to find a perfect pet. It also is a book to help you find out which of the 5 love languages your child has. After reading the book several times there are questions in the back that will help you to determine which one best suits your child.
The 5 different love languages are:
Words of Affirmation
Quality Time
Physical Touch
and Acts of Service.
This book is the perfect size 8 X 10 and has the most colorful, interesting pictures. Besides being very entertaining it is also very helpful in learning about your child. It’s like a workbook with a fantastic story to go along with. Your child will only enjoy the story and not know about the 5 different love languages. I highly recommend this book. So very interesting.
