Of Love and Pies

Of Love and Pies is an engaging picture book written and illustrated by Sheila McGraw. The narrator suggests that every time she says I love you a baker will bake three or five pies. It starts out with pies for breakfast lunch and dinner. Everyone loves having pie whenever they want. Soon there are more pies than anyone, even a giant the size of a mountain, can eat. There are pies all the way to the moon! Pies start making messes that can’t be cleaned, and unwanted guests of bugs and rats show up. This creates a problem of too many pies and the question, can you say I love you too much?

As the author and illustrator, Sheila McGraw has created an astonishing children’s book that provides a visual representation of love in a whimsical way that will grasp children’s attention. The awe-inspiring illustrations will delight young readers, as McGraw has made sure to include representation of multi-cultural families. Understanding I love you can be a challenging concept for toddlers and small children. What is love? This visual of pies make it a tangible idea.

Unlike many children’s books that can grow repetitive reading or overly simple illustrations, this children’s book will delight the parents and caregivers reading this enchanting story. As the story continues, people realize that there is such a thing as too many pies; and if you live where saying I Love you makes heaps of pies, you’ll need to cut back on saying I love you. The narrator must come up with a compromise that works for the town, has fewer pies, and still feels right to them. It validates the storyteller’s emotions and provides a solution for everyone.

Of Love and Pies is a magical picture book intended for toddlers and young children. However, the artwork and exciting story that has not been oversimplified will make it enjoyable for adults to read.

Lucky for Monty he has friends that live on all the different colour roads and he asks them for help collecting balloons in each of their favorite colors.

This adorable picture book, written by Tina Kid, is perfect for the three to five year old age group. It is ideal as a read along and one on one reading with a child.
