Liv Downing is a registered psychologist, mindfulness educator, meditation teacher, parent, and host of the podcast, ‘You Are Loved’. All of her expertise shine through in a wonderful celebration of love that is perfect for families to read together.
Presented as a robust board book that will stand up to countless readings and the demands of young hands, You Are Loved is a glorious celebration of love that delivers the timely and important message to readers of any age that they are quite simply loved no matter what.
Across brightly coloured pages and through everyday situations and experiences, the message and repetitive refrain, ‘You are loved’ is succinctly delivered. It doesn’t matter who we are with, how we are feeling, what we are doing or what the time is, love is unconditional, there are no terms and conditions, and this is exactly how it should be.
Large, colourful illustrations provide a treat for the eyes and little fingers will enjoy exploring the cut-outs on each page that cleverly combine to make an all-encompassing and loving heart. A guided meditation at the end is the perfect activity for parents and children to finish with.
With huge thanks to Allen & Unwin and Albert Street Books for the copy I received in exchange for an honest review.
