Best Children's Books to Celebrate
Valentine's Day page 4 of 6
love to celebrate Valentine's Day with some great children's books.
This is already such a fun holiday for kids, and adding some cute and
funny children's books to the mix just adds to the day! And books don't have to
be written specifically for the holiday in order to be used to celebrate
In fact, about a third of the
books that we include on our list aren't specifically about Valentine's
Day, but are about love and kindness in general. Since the holiday can
easily be expanded to encompass more than simply 'romantic' love, these
books are just as appropriate and fun for the holiday as the ones
written specifically for the day!
Below is page four of our six page list of the very best children's
books to celebrate Valentine's Day. Once you've perused the books on
this page, click the arrow at the bottom of the page to see more of the
Mortimer the zombie just
can't seem to find love. He tried the gym, but that didn't work because
his arm kept falling off. He tried to meet a sweetheart out dancing,
but his moves were so stiff none of the ladies found him attractive.
Will he ever find love?
like it Feeling
a bit overloaded on
pink-and-frilly books and stories of exchanging valentines
book is the perfect antidote! It's about
Valentine's Day, but with a comic twist and an unexpectedly adorable
main character. You can't help but feel for poor Mortimer and root for
him to find some zombie love. :) Let's face it: some kids
don't like all the Valentine's Day 'gushy' stuff. This book delivers
something those kids can appreciate. You will definitely have them in
giggles with this book (between chills, that is.)
Too-Little is a mouse in
love, but he's so tiny and the object of his affection is so tall, he
just can't seem to reach high enough to get a kiss. Undaunted, he piles
object after object into a tall tower, hoping to finally reach his
great love. Will he ever get a kiss?
"This tall, slim book about love offers some delightful design
surprises...Attractive as it is clever." (Booklist)
like it This
book isn't specifically
about Valentine's Day but we are including it on this list because it's
a really cute love story with fun, clever paper engineering. And the
repetitive text makes it great for early readers!
What it's about Pierre
the mouse is in love
with Catherine the rabbit, and Catherine feels the same about the
dashing Pierre, but both are too shy to tell each other how they feel.
In lyrical text and charming (award winning) illustrations, readers
watch as these two bashful lovers summon the courage to meet. Cute!
What it's about As
in Rosenthal's best selling
book Cookies, this title defines words relating to a theme--in this
case love-- and provides cute, kid-friendly examples of each word (ie:
heartfelt, compassionate, selfless, heartbroken...)
like it Like
the other books on this
list, this title isn't specifically about Valentine's Day, but it is
full of "sweet little lessons on love" so we find it a great read
during the Valentine's Day 'season'. And it's a great
builder as well!
