valentines day books for preschoolers

January 20, 2011

We went to the library last week (for the first time since Lucia has been born!) and picked up a few good Valentines Day books. We've particularly enjoyed these:
Snow Valentines (A Harry & Emily Adventure Holiday House Reader, Level 2)
Snow Valentines  by Karen Gray Ruelle
Two siblings work together to create the perfect valentines for their parents:
Everybody writes 'I love you' on a card. I want it to be something no one else will do. I want something just from me. 
A Village Full of Valentines
A Village Full of Valentines by James Stevenson
Follow several stories of friends who create and give Valentines to each other.
"What in the world is that supposed to be?" said Clifford. 
"It's a heart," said Vicky. 
"Looks like two skunks and a fat bear to me," said Clifford.
Cranberry Valentine
Cranberry Valentine by Wende Devlin
Another adventure with Mr. Whiskers and Maggie from CRANBERRY THANKSGIVING.
"It's terrible, Maggie! Look wht somebody sent me!" He stood at Maggie's door in a fury and waved a frothy lace valentine in the air. "It's all about cupids, lovebirds, hearts and flowers. And it smells like rose perfume." He wrinkled his nose. "How sweet," said Maggie. "Revolting," said Mr. Whiskers.
The Runaway Valentine
The Runaway Valentine by Tina Casey
A store-bought valentine takes an adventure and ends up becoming part of a little girls homemade creation.
And everyone said it was the greatest, most terrific, finest, most wonderful, loveliest, and by far the best valentine they had ever seen in their whole entire lives.
One Zillion Valentines by Frank Modell
Marvin and Milton come up with a creative solution to their lack of Valentines fund. 
"If I had a lot of money, I'd buy all those valentines," said Marvin. "That's silly," said Milton. "You don't even have a girl." "Valentines aren't just for girls. Valentines are for everybody," said Marvin. 

Have you picked up any good ones this week?

We just checked the "The Runaway Valentine" out from our library and I think its hysterical! Have you seen "Sweet Hearts" by Jan Carr? It's the nicest little rhyming book about a young panda hiding Valentine's cards for his parents to find -- "One heart on the bathroom mirror, one heart in a shoe, one heart by my Mommy's mug, to tell her 'I love YOU' --

It is too cute and my daughter (3) just adores it! We plan on doing this on Feb. 14 to surprise our "Daddy panda," heehee!

Will we be seeing any Silly Eagle Book crafts to go along with Valentine's Day?!

That book sounds so great, Regina! I'll have to look for it. I hope I'm not too late--holiday books get snatched up pretty quickly at our library.

I'm working on some crafts--hopefully, I have them up by next week!

Thank you so much for sharing! I was looking for some new Valentine's books to check out this year. Two of our favorites from the past are "Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch" and "The Day it Rained Hearts." Thanks again!
