Valentine's Day Books for Kids

While the origins of this cherub-cherishing day allegedly date back to ancient Roman times, there’s no better place in our modern times to celebrate the origins and spectacles of Valentine’s Day than in a good Valentine’s Day book for kids. Kids love this day full of cheesy cards and candy gifts. We recommend parents and teachers create a collection of the most beloved and best Valentine’s Day books for kids and curate annually. So that, once a year, you may gather your child or children and read some of your and their favorite books to celebrate kissy-faces, love-hearts, broken-hearts, rebounds, random acts of kindness, and hilarious stories like Love, Splat (Splat the Cat) by Rob Scotton or You Loves Ewe! by Cece Bell.
