LOVE, I believe in you! by Olga Sunrise is a tale of hope, happiness, and belief in oneself. Love is a six-year-old girl who resides with her family in a house inside a tree. They live in a town called Forest, where every citizen strictly follows the traditions. To stand out and go against the norms would be disrespectful. But Love is not satisfied with this sad, mundane town. One day, Love discovers a place unlike any other. It is a place full of magic, warmth, and joy, things that her hometown does not have. She also meets a mysterious girl with glowing, golden hair. What would Love learn from this journey? Read this book to find out!

I like how the book conveys an important message using a simple premise. The story of Love is finding your path to happiness. It tells you to find something that you love doing and make it your coping mechanism. In life, we also have to do things that we don’t feel happy about, but if we know what we love to do, it will make things a lot bearable.

It also speaks of how infectious happiness can be. When you’re full of warmth and joy, you’re most likely to pass it on to the people around you. In the book, for example, there are flying sparks that feed on the positive energy around them. Laughs and smiles make them glow brighter. There is a lot of symbolism in this book, but this is the most notable one.

What I also like is the writing. It is poetic but not overwhelmingly so. It amazes me when writers write profound expressions using simple terms and syntax. It has a whimsical feel to it, making this book engaging for younger readers. I also appreciate the watercolor illustrations in the book. They were a visual treat, as they emphasized the most important events in the story. Liliya Goncharova and Olga Lee’s artistic brilliance made the whole reading experience extra delightful.

I can’t think of anything to dislike about this book. It was also professionally edited, as I found not a single error. I can’t rate this book any less than 4 out of 4 stars. The author’s writing style was excellent, and the illustrations were a visual delight. Most importantly, the story successfully delivered a wonderful message. I heartily recommend this book to children between the ages of six and twelve. It would also be nice if teachers or parents would pick up this book and read it to their kids.

It appears a book so warm and soothing that while some adults will read they will find their inner child happy. Doing what we love makes them tolerable and joyful. You have done great work with this review!
A great book will speak to the reader! - Anilllll :reading-2:

What an interesting sounding book! I did not expect the character's name to be Love. I like that! Almost a foreshadowing, if you will. Great review!
