Kids Books for Valentine's Day!

February 13, 2012 - Amy Phelps
Since Valentine's Day is tomorrow, here are a few books to share with kids!

Pinkalicious is ready to celebrate the holiday in "Pinkalicious: Pink of Hearts" by Victoria Kann.

It's Valentine's Day, and her class is going to have a party and a special valentine exchange with a secret person. Pinkalicious gets her best friend, Alison, as her secret valentine. She makes a special very pink and very fabulous valentine.

At the party, everyone enjoys cupcakes and heart-shaped cookies and Alison loves her card. But all Pinkalicious gets is a plain white envelope with her name on it and inside, a regular piece of folded paper with a pink heart drawn on it. What's so special about that? But when she opens it up, she finds a special surprise from her best friend!

Included in this book are 8 valentine cards to share, a fold-out poster and stickers for kids to enjoy!

"Pinkalicious: Pink of Hearts" is published by HarperFestival. It is $6.99 and is for ages 3 to 7.

*** The celebration of a special friend is shown in the simple yet delightful "You" by Stephen Michael King.

A dog celebrates the color in the world, but the most colorful thing of all is his friend, a bird. The dog and the bird celebrate all of the music in the world, but the most musical thing in the world to the dog is the bird. And the world may be exciting, but the most exciting place to be in the world is with his friend.

This is a sweet and simply told story of friendship and love with wonderful watercolor illustrations.

"You" is published by Greenwillow Books. It is $14.99 and is for all ages.

*** Splat the Cat sets out to impress Kitten on Valentine's Day in "Love, Splat" by bestselling author Rob Scotton.

Splat is nervous as he prepares for school. He made a special card for Kitten for Valentine's Day, but he doesn't think she likes him. He literally runs into her, but all she does is pull his ears, poke his tummy, tie his tail in a knot and call him smelly. When its time to pass out cards, Splat doesn't give Kitten the card yet. At recess, Spike sneaks up on him and makes him drop the note. Spike claims to like Kitten more than Splat and shows him the big card he made it. Splat's card looks tiny in comparison, so he throws it away. But he doesn't see Kitten get it out of the trash and read it and suddenly Kitten is giving him a note. What will it say?

This is a cute story about heartfelt versus showy displays of affection and what they really mean.

"Love, Splat" is published by Harper. It is $9.99 and is for ages 3 to 7.
