I am a special education teacher and I was super excited for this book. I have used the theory with my class and it made such a difference in my attitude toward my students and theirs with each other. Then with the app that Moody provided it was an added bonus because I have an IPAD in my room. I believe that when children discover their language it will make a difference in their learning and their interpersonal communication with others.

The story is a little long and certainly geared for the over 5 crowd. In fact, I recommend it for ages 5-13! Sure those tweens might find it a little cheesy, but they will love the ending! With that being said, I think it is a good resource for parents, too. Read my full review at http://www.mymommyreads.blogspot.com/2012/05/love-languages.html

This book was written to help your child discover his or her own love language with their level and experiences in mind. I absolutely love this book because it works so well for wide age ranges that are typically in a family. This is a wonderful family bonding book!
