Summary: In All the Places to Love by Patricia MacLachlan, a boy nostagically connects his years with the places that he and his family loved to go. I found this book irresistible, as much for its richly detailed paintings by Mike Wimmeras for its slightly emotional story which pulls at the heartstrings on many levels. I felt as if I could walk right into each of the illustrations and feel at home. My children loved the book and seemed captivated by the art work as well.
Pros: Lovely illustrations and a story that will bring back childhood memories for all.
Cons: “All the Places to Love” are clearly on this family’s farm, but I hope that my children can find places to love wherever God takes them throughout their lives.
Age Range: 2-8
