In this sweet rhyming book, the little panda makes special hearts and hides them all around the house for her family to find. This book also comes in a CD form that students love to listen to!
#2 Slugs in Love by Susan Pearson
A favorite of many children, this cute story is of a shy slug named Mary Lou. She writes mysterious love notes (in slime all over the garden) to her love interest, Herbie. Children think this is so funny!
#3 Mouse’s First Valentine by Lauren Thompson
Mouse watches his big sister Minka make him a special Valentine using paper, paste, ribbon, and lace. All of the “Mouse’s First” books are great and this one is no exception!
#4 Big Shark’s Valentine Surprise by Steve Metzger
Poor Chomp has a really hard time making friends in his new neighborhood on Valentine’s Day. None of the other fish seem to appreciate his big, toothy smile and friendly disposition. Start a great discussion after the story asking if the students would be friends with Chomp!
#5 Roses are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink by Diane de Groat
This is another series enjoyed by many, but may be geared more to the older Pre-K and early elementary students. Gilbert writes Valentines for all of his classmates, but two of them are not very nice. His little prank almost gets him into big trouble!
