Reading Corner: Valentine's Day books for kids


What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than reading with my kids? 

This year I'm filling up this love canvas tote bag with lots of books by Macmillan. I'm also adding some chocolate for Jack and vanilla cupcake Goldfish for the littlest ones -- because everyone deserves something sweet on Valentine's Day!



An epic, if initially unrequited, love affair between a graceful gazelle and a clumsy, hapless ox. Romance will never be the same. Adam Rex's hilarious, sweet, and at times heartbreaking letters between a hopelessly romantic ox and a conceited, beautiful gazelle are paired perfectly with Scott Campbell's joyful illustrations to bring you a romance for the ages.


We humans smooch with our lips. But how do giraffes, whales, hummingbirds, tree frogs, and other creatures kiss? It's fun to wonder about and to see in the pages of this charming book, which includes facts about each animal at the end. Perfect for Valentine's Day and all year round.

 
Cute and cuddly animals wear their hearts on their sleeves in this charming board book with Valentine's Day rhymes. There are tactile, heart-shaped holes on every page, while glitter and foil add a sprinkle of Valentine's Day magic to this endearing book for the little one you love.


A fresh, funny take on sibling rivalry and conflict resolution, as two sparring siblings are forced to "hug it out."Adults will delight in a new solution to conflict, while kids will enjoy yelling "HUG IT OUT!" at each familiar situation. With humor and smart, eye-catching illustrations, Louis Thomas's debut is a cheeky tribute to sibling rivalry and (cuddly) compromise
 
Horace and Hattie are hedgehogs, and the very best of friends. Together, they make daisy chains, splash in puddles, and have tea parties. But there is one thing they can't do―hug! They are just too spiky. Throughout the seasons, these two hedgehogs will try many different ways of hugging. But will Horace and Hattie find a hug that feels just right?
