Cutest Kids Valentines
Day Books

Kids Valentine's Day books are a big part of childhood celebrations of the holiday!  Kids love hearing all the cute and funny stories, and there really are so many great books to choose from! 

Below is our long list of best kids Valentine's Day books. We LOVE teaching during this time of year, as Valentine's Day can be expanded beyond 'romantic' love to encompass kindness, giving, letter writing, poetry, and so many other great topics. Kids Valentine's Day books are a great springboard for all sorts of academic and a great discussion starter for acting with love and kindness.

This list is long, but we'd still love to add to it if we have missed any great ones. If we don't have your favorite kids Valentine's Day books, please let us know!
