What are some of your favorite Valentine's Day books?


Valentine’s Day is all about love, and it's a great opportunity to talk to your toddler about the many ways in which you can show love, and of course, how much you love them! Hugs and kisses are a great way to express love, making these three books perfect for Valentine’s Day: “Hug” by Jez Alborough, “Hug Time” by Patrick McDonnell, and “Plant a Kiss” by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Peter H. Reynolds. “Guess How Much I Love You” by Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram, “I Love You Because You're You” by Liza Baker and David Mcphail, and “I Love You More” by Laura Duksta and Karen Keesler are three touching stories about the love between a parent and a child. What is great about all of these books is that you will want to read them not only on Valentine’s Day, but throughout the year!
