Kiddie Korner Review: Petals Of Love by Bernadette Callaghan-Joseph


(from Dorrance Bookstore)

Petals of Love is a superbly written poetic tale about two caring, generous, enchanting fairies in their magical land of Judeith, who present the Maiden Fairy Eliza with a precious gift. This story sends a simple, beautiful message to all readers of the importance of giving with love. According to the talented author, “Petals of Love is a story of unconditional love, and the innocence of a child’s heart. Children inspire us with their imagination, and they simply make the world a better place.”

The Review:

This was a cute children's book. I would have to say that little girl's would like this one but probably not those little boys. (Daughter loved it and son didn't stay around LOL!)

The message of the book was wonderful. It was based around that old saying "it's the thought that counts" or "something that comes from the heart." I enjoyed the simplicity of the story and so did my little girl.

I also want to mention the illustrator, Cindy Strasser. I loved the beautiful artwork.

Overall, we (except for my son) enjoyed this little book.

About The Author:

For years, Bernadette Callaghan-Joseph has been telling make-believe stories to her beloved children each night before bed. The whimsical fairies in her story, Petals of Love, were characters that were warmly embraced by her three children, who named Petals of Love as their favorite story of all. When she is not writing stories and entertaining her children with fanciful stories at her home in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania, Bernadette Callaghan-Joseph works as a flight attendant for US Airways and also volunteers her time as a Sunday school teacher.
