Consider Love
From the sentimental to the soulful, this little book explores, in absolutely no depth whatsoever (yet with a number of lively and surely profound illustrations), the many and curious modes of love. Also it rhymes.
Pocket-sized, assuming that your loved one's pockets are pretty darn big, this lovely volume is a swell gifty object (hey, have you ever tried t

Cute book. Great illustrations, as always from this author. Couldn't help but thinking that this book seemed to be written more for adults than for children. Not sure I'd read this one to my little one again...

Now this is the cutest way to tell someone special you love them!!!

Consider Love by Sandra Boynton is a poetry book for children ages 4 and up. The book uses different animals pictures to show love in it’s different forms and moods. It uses a simple small rhyming sentence structure through out the book to describe love.

I absolutely loved this book. It was one of the books I wasn’t expecting to be anything special, but at the end of the day I think it has officially made my favorite top ten. It can be used for small children when trying to explain love and/or wi

Adorable! This book is deeper than most of Sandra Boynton's books, but it still has the hilarious illustrations she's famous for.

Consider Love by Sandra Boynton is a very cute, funny, and fun way to tell somebody that you love them. As I finished reading this book, I had a smile on my face and felt so mushy inside:-). It is intended for children ages 4 and up. I think that the children will find it very cute and funny as well as adults. I gave this book a 4 star rating. The book uses different, funny animal characters to display and show love in its many moods, forms, shapes, and sizes. Love can be simple, mysterious, to ...more

Explore love in all its shapes and sizes in this simple poem. Some love is passionate, others are sweet, there are those that love themselves, and there are many that love others. For each type of love represented is a picture of an animal that suits that description. In one case, "love problematic", pair of porcupines sadly can't even touch each other. These cute comic-strip-like cartoons are both funny and charming. The rhymes are quite good and the text as a whole is meaningful. Consider Love ...more

According to the jacket description- which would earn this book five stars in and of itself- Sandra Boynton is an internationally ignored authority on romance. Thus, this book is a real gem. The poetry is cute and funny, and the illustrations, as in all her books, are quirky and wonderful. "Consider Love" would make a great Valentine's gift, so feel free to drop a hint to my future husband in about ten years. What could be more romantic than pictures of love-struck hippos, penguins, farm animals ...more

Is it cliche to say I love this little book? Boynton is one of my favorite authors in the children's board-book genre; I often give her books as gifts because kids enjoy her stories, and her books are just plain fun to read if you're an adult. CONSIDER LOVE is simplistic in it's message: love is everywhere and comes in many forms. "There's hopeful love / and love despairing. / Cautious love / and love that's daring." It's an excellent gift book to remind your kids--or anyone for that matter--tha ...more

I’m not sure exactly what it is that makes readers fall in love with Sandra Boynton’s sweet little picture books and board books. Probably the adorable pictures filled with such emotion and expression? Or the tenderness and feelings the stories evoke? Whatever it is I love them! In this one Sandra B. expresses the many many types of love; from shy love, to overly dramatic love and everything in between.
Alicia Scully
Boynton makes me so happy with everything that she writes and this book is not exception. She goes through the various types of love with her familiar characters and illustration styles. The book is appropriate for all ages as children will love her style and adults will find the truth in her provided situations. The book is extremely funny and will be reread by many readers.

I am a Boyton fan. Love the rhyming and the silly text. This would be fun to read with older elementary kids. Probably too many big words for little ones, like "eloquent," "overzealous," and "problematic"--but that is definitely part of its charm too.

Boynton is a favorite of many and this book will be on my favorite Valentines books shelf. It would also make a cute wedding or engagement gift. Love the cover flap that reads "Ms. Boynton is an internationally ignored authority on romance."

Another great book by one of my favorite children's book authors! This would make a great Valentine's gift for all ages (even adults). :)

I really like this book. My cutie gave it to me for Valentine's Day. The words are fun, but when I took time to look at the pictures while I read it I couldn't help laughing.
