Valentine’s Day Books to Make Your Heart Sing

Like last week’s books, not all of today’s books are strictly about Valentine’s Day, but they are about love. 


You’re
Lovable to Me
by Kat Yeh, illustrated by Sue
Anderson

All
the Bunny children have a day of mischief of some kind or another. No matter,
Mama Bunny tucks them in that night, saying, I’m your mama. You’re my bunnies. And you’re lovable to me. The
last scene will make you smile.

 

Jonathan
and Martha

by Petr Horáček

Jonathan
lives on the left side of a tree and Martha lives on the right. They meet in
the middle of a pear. This was not love at first sight but in the end…

 

Love,
Splat
by
Rob Scotton

Splat
the Cat likes Kitten. He makes her a special valentine but is afraid to give it to her. This book is sweet but has illustrations that will make you laugh. I like
how Splat shares his thoughts with his best friend, Seymour, a mouse.

 

Just
a Little Love
by Mercer Meyer

Little
Critter’s Grandma isn’t feeling well. Little Critter and his family decide to
gather some goodies and go give her a little love. The try to gather food, flowers, and apples but things don’t go so
well. No matter…

 

It’s
Valentine’s Day
by Jack Prelutsky, illustrated by Yossi
Abolafia

Jack
Prelutsky writes very funny poems. I think these would be perfect for family
read-alouds.

 

Franny
K. Stein, Mad Scientist: Attack of the 50-Ft Cupid

by
Jim Benton

Franny
is a mad scientist who lives in the attic of her family’s house. She is
brilliant but doesn’t really pay attention to things like holidays. Somehow she
manages to create a 50-foot Cupid, which causes all kinds of problems. This is
book 2 of the series. I found it to be very funny.

 

Happy
Valentine’s Day, Dolores
by Barbara Samuels

Delores
has been banned from her sister’s bedroom because Delores was always borrowing Faye’s stuff without
permission. But Delores couldn’t help herself from borrowing one more thing.
Bad idea. Now Delores has to figure out how to solve this new problem without
Faye finding out.

 

Somebody
Loves You, Mr. Hatch
by Eileen Spinelli, illustrated by Paul
Yalowitz

Mr.
Hatch has no friends. He does the same things every day and he does them alone.
One Valentine’s Day, a giant valentine is delivered to him and his life
changes. But is it the valentine that changes him? This is one of my favorite books for Valentine’s Day.


Happy upcoming Valentine’s Day!

Gail
