Loved it! What a beautiful book with a beautiful message, relevant not only for children but for adults too.
Plenty of love to go around by Emma Chichester Clark is based on the adventures of her real-life dog. Plum the dog loves being her family’s special one. So when Binky the cat moves in next door and everyone showers him with attention, Plum feels left out. Cats are not her favorite thing! Binky follows Plum everywhere, even to the park, which everyone knows is not for cats. And on top of that, Binky is so annoyingly clever. Is he the new Special One? Or is there enough love for both of them?
Read this book to know how Plum tackles feelings of jealousy and the difficulties of sharing.
It’s a beautiful, endearing story with super cute illustrations that readers will love. While written with rivalry amongst pets, it’s a wonderful story to explain jealousy of any kind to kids. Sibling rivalry, jealousy of friends doing better, attention-seeking, insecurities, and more.
The end of the story leaves you awwww :), with a beautiful message that the more you love, the more love you get. There is a space for every one of us to grow, flourish, and most importantly to be loved.
Sharing any day is more rewarding than competing. Collaborating is more fulfilling than individual journeys.
If you ask me honestly, I think this book can be a sweet reminder to many adults too. Sometimes children’s books teach us more magic than we can think of :).
Targeted towards young readers, this one would make a wonderful read for kids below 6 years age group.
