There is certainly no shortage of Valentine's Day books for kids. I love most holidays, and Valentine's Day is right up there - who can complain about cards, crafts, and candy? It's a perfect time for kids, and all the pink and red makes me happy. I don't have any favorite Valentine's Day books, but we've been exploring all the ones the library has available for us. Here are a few that have made us smile in the past week or so:
The Biggest Valentine Ever by Steven Kroll - mice buddies, Clayton and Desmond, learn that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts in this cute little story about creating the biggest Valentine's Day card of all!
Snowy Valentine by David Petersen - my girls, especially Clara, have a recent affinity for bunnies (Easter will be fun this year!), so this was a fun one about a bunny couple. Jasper goes on a hunt in the snow for the perfect Valentine for Lilly. As he becomes more and more discouraged, he discovers he's created the best Valentine of all.
Pete the Cat: Valentine's Day is Cool - we have just recently started to get to know Pete the Cat in our house, so this has been a fun one for the holidays. In this adventure, Pete learns how cool Valentine's Day can be as he makes Valentine's for all the special cats in his life.
These are just a few of the hundreds of books out there for kids (and adults) for Valentine's Day. All of them have inspired us to create our own Valentine's and to talk about the people in our lives that we love. And, they have inspired me to celebrate Valentine's Day a bit more throughout the year. Hope everyone out there has a love and candy-filled celebration!
