In a day when many children do not feel loved and cherished, tangible expressions of love become crucial. Lisa Soares Hale has written Penny Love, a young child's picture book that expresses the value of the love of a grandmother for her grandchild, love manifested through generations, and the enduring power and blessing of expressing
The idea is simple. A grandmother tells her granddaughter that every time she finds a penny, "You will know that I love you." Pennies are everywhere, and by the time the young girl becomes a bride she has built up her own tradition of declaring her love whenever a penny is found. Simple things are often the most profound, and Lisa Soares Hale's story registers on a deep level the kind of faithful
love that many are longing for.
In reading Penny Love, young children will feel the assurance of the little girl in the story as she is reminded of her grandmother's love every time she finds a penny. Parents will see the underlying importance of expressing love in tangible ways. Readers young and old will be reminded of
the enduring power of love.
