Just in time to give to your little loves on the day of love!
Here are a few of my favorites broken down my age group:
This sweet cloth book is one of my gifts for my baby this Valentine’s Day. I actually first saw it at his daycare and all the babies love it. It’s got a different animal on each page and the flap lifts up to show how they say “I love you” to their babies. For example, the elephant says “I love you a ton!” and the dog says “I ruff you!” And the cloth nature of this book makes it virtually indestructible–bonus!
This is a kiss as you read book. It gives you a place to kiss baby (like their toes) and how many times you kiss them. It’s a very interactive way to play and say I love you while getting in that very important reading time.
Where is Baby’s Valentine
I really really WISH this was a little boy baby…or at least a gender neutral baby. This is another lift the flap book about a baby searching for her valentine. I’m sure baby boys would like it too.
Guess How Much I Love You
Also great for babies, this book is about a little rabbit and big rabbit competing to show how they love each other more. Seen that phrase “I love you to the moon and back” all over everything? Yep, came from this book.
Love You Forever
Now that I’m a mommy of a little man, I love this book so much more! It’s a really great story about a mommy that loves her baby all the way into her grey hair and rocking chair.
Dear Valentine Letters–Mad Libs
I loved Mad Libs as a kid and I can’t wait to fill them in with my baby after he grows up a little (…I take it back…I can wait…don’t grow up!). This is a fun way to interact with your kids on V-day.
The Dot & The Line
This is a blast from the past-1968! This is a great book for your elementary school readers. It’s about a straight line that falls in love with a red dot and tries to find ways to impress her. It’s full of fun puns about young mathematics and the story of winning love is great too.
However you intend to celebrate, I hope your love day is filled with…well, LOVE!
