The Lovereading4Kids comment

A touching sequence of pictures which delight in the pleasures of giving as Ivy hands out presents of all kinds. The jokes of the contrasts in the gifts and their recipients are nicely made in the cleverly designed pages and the resolution is charming.

Lovereading comment:

Ivy Loves to Give captures the generosity and spiritedness of a toddler. The generosity and spiritedness that grown-ups sometimes forget. Let this picture book be a warm reminder of the gift of giving. Ivy's gifts are sometimes a bit muddly but they are always from the heart. Internationally acclaimed illustrator Freya Blackwood explores the essence of generosity both in terms of giving and of receiving.

Synopsis

Ivy Loves to Give by Freya Blackwood

Ivy is very generous with her giving. She offers a cup of tea to the chook, a flip-flop to a snail and a dummy to the cat. The presents aren't always perfect but they are always perfectly given.
