A comprehensive collection of children’s books about Valentine’s Day, including favorite characters! Perfect to read with your kids for the holiday.
Valentine’s Day. A holiday both adults and kids celebrate, but in different ways. While parents head to dinner and bring flowers, kids pass out candy grams, Valentine notes and dress in red during school.
This year, Valentine’s Day looks a bit different for many of us. Some are dressed and ready to go… to the kitchen for a dinner “date.” Kids are making Valentine’s Day crafts at home instead of passing out cards and trinkets at school.
Still, in many ways, we’re still celebrating Valentine’s Day as we always do. We buy chocolates and flowers, hand gifts to our significant others, and yes, dress in red for the day.
And a perfect way to highlight the day of love with your kids? Reading children’s books about Valentine’s Day.
