My six-year-old niece Bella really wanted to add something to Goodreads so I told her to go get her favorite book and we'd add it to our Read Shelf. She came bounding down the stairs carrying "That Yucky Love Thing".
Me: How many stars do you want to give the book? (I proceeded to tell her what each star represents.)
Bella: All the stars. It's better than amazing. I love it. It love it so, so much!
Me: Yuck, YUCK, double Y-U-C-K!

This book has been a smash hit with our famil

This book was OK, the illustrations were really good, but the story did not make much sense. I dislike books that children disrespect their families and in my opinion that what the protagonist Sam does at the beginning to his elders and throughout the book he just complains. I wouldn't read this book to my class.

I liked the animal illustrations but not the people. I didn't like the look of their noses. I think this book is a great example of how children think. When they are younger they think seeing their parents be affectionate it's gross or nasty. But as they grow up they realize that they will experience it too.

While shopping for gifts for some children I came across this book. It looked cute but I read it to ensure it had a good story. Funny story of a boy who thinks love is yucky and he goes in search to find a land where there is no yucky love. He soon finds out that love is a good thing.

This is one of those cutesy books that probably didn't make it big, but is cute for adults to read and smile while you're waiting in line at the B&N.

This is an adorable story about a little boy who is tired of seeing everyone loving each other. He thinks that hugs and hand holding are yucky! Eventually, he finds a crush and holds her hand.

I was looking for a good Valentine's Day story to share with my nephew and I thought this one was just cute. The illustrations are pretty, the story was fun. I really liked it.

I got this from my best friend as a wedding present. Since hubby and I often say gag, barf, puke, vomit, etc after being sappy with each other this was pretty appropriate :-)
This is a sweet book aout a boy who is sick of love but ends up falling in love himself. This is a good book for little kids.
