Reviews of Love Circles the World

"Love Circles the World is an enchanting peek into cultures around the globe. Its message of family and love is so simple it’s sublime. The artwork is elegant and touching. Love Circles the World is certain to become a favorite, inspirational book children will read over and over. I’m a fan of Marion Young and hope she gives us many more such uplifting books in the future."  

Margaret Lukas, author of Farthest House

"The picture book Love Circles the World works on so many levels. Marion Young and illustrator Christina Mattison Ebert have fashioned a warm and magical trip that defines love. Children (and adults reading to children) will find all five senses engaged as they travel the world, exploring other countries and cultures while witnessing acts of love. This book shows children how to show love toward others. And this book is fun! I smiled a lot. I especially enjoyed the cleverly illustrated gondola ride inside the giant bowl of pasta in Italy. A highly recommended book."

"This adorable book does a great job of highlighting culture and tradition that can be found around the globe. The illustrations are brilliant and really showcase the beautiful diversity throughout the world. A great book for any home or classroom."

"Love Circles the World is a wonderful book. I am enthusiastic in the use of this book as a learning tool in regards for different cultures. It is artistic with stunning pictures and poetry."

Deena Gandhi, M.D.

"Love Circles the World is perfect for all kids (even this 85-year-old kid), especially preschool to third-grade youngsters. The poetry, pictures, and colors are amazing. I love the world map. And to include the flags of each selected nation is a real coup since it added more color, enhancing the visual effects of the book even further. Thanks a bunch for a well written and amply illustrated book."

Through Christina Ebert's dynamic depictions, author Marion Young's words leap off the page and go straight into our children's hearts. This book is sure to leave the next generation feeling optimistic about the world, so their dreams may stay alive whether they are sleeping or wide awake!"

"Love Circles the World is a delightful book combing fun and fantasy while providing parents and teachers an educational tool to discuss feelings. Often children do not know how to express their emotions. Love Circles the World introduces children to feelings in a unique and engaging manner. It is only a short step from understanding the emtoions presented in the book and recognizing one's own. The author, Marion Young, skillfully gives children concrete ways to demonstrate the many facets of love. I highly recommend Love Circles the World."
