Review: Dynomike Love Bug
Title: Dynomike Love Bug by Frankie B Rabbit
Rating: 4 stars
…I received a copy of this book from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
Hug, hug and spread the love bug. That is the message delivered in this book and an awesome message it is. Dynomike is feeling lonely and empty. This is however cured by Barry Mcdove who gives him the love bug through a hug. Through clever rhymes and colorful illustrations, we are shown the awesome power of hugs.
I'm not exactly sure what the intended age group for this book is but I guess it is appropriate for 5 year olds and above. There are a couple of words that might be “difficult” at least for the children I know. Then again, it might be the chance to teach them to your child. This book made me want a hug too but my family doesn’t do hugs. Reading this book for or with your child is the best excuse to give them a warm hug before they start avoiding them.
Dynomike says, “I’m empty of love. My heart feels hollow today.”
A lot of us usually feel like that from time to time and it looks like things won’t get better. A takeaway from this book is that we all need someone and we all need someone to show us love. It is important to show love to others even if it is just through a hug.
