Top 5 Valentine's Day Books for Kids

Top 5 Valentine's Day Books for Children featured by top children's author Lindsay Barry

I'm not sure if your kids are like mine, but they DO NOT like chocolate filled with anything other than...chocolate. This blows my mind, as I will eat anything covered in chocolate.

I don't love giving them cheap (gross) candy for Valentine's Day, but one thing that I always buy for them is a new book.

Here are my top five Valentine's books for kids:

1. Love from The Very Hungry Caterpillar (The World of Eric Carle) - ages 3-5 years: Because anything by Eric Carle is magical.

2. Llama Llama I Love You by Anna Dewdney - ages preschool and up: Because the rhymes are SO cute, and I'm fascinated with how Llama Llama makes valentine's with hooves for hands.

3. Hug Time by Patrick McDonnell - ages 5+: Because a hug truly is the simplest and kindest gift.

4. Roses are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink by Diane deGroat - ages 4-8 years: Because my boys and I giggle at the title and it's a great way to teach kids about being kind.

5. Pete the Cat: Valentine's Day is Cool by James Dean - ages 4-8 years: Because Pete shows his appreciation for others and what they love.

What about you? What are your favorite Valentine's books to read with your children?
