Our Favorite Valentine Books

You already know that I am a book addict. To further show you how bad my addiction is, I will tell you that I have containers divided into holidays where I store my children's books. There are Valentine's, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.... boxes. When each holiday is approaching I pull out the boxes so we can read the holiday books. I thought I would share some of our favorite books from our Valentine box.

Robin Hill School: Too Many Valentines

Mr. Louie is Screwy
(My Boys LOVE this "Weird School" series.
In this one he puts a love potion in the water fountain.)
Froggy's First Kiss

I Love You, Stinky Face
I can't tell you how many times I have read this book.
It was Little Guy's FAVORITE book.

Love You Forever
I cry every time I read this book. I admit it. Big Guy loved this book
and still says "Love you forever." when he leaves the house. *sniff*

The Night Before Valentine's Day

Roses are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink

The Valentine Bears
Mr. and Mrs. Bear always missed Valentine's Day because they were hibernating.
But this year they share a wonderful surprise.

In Case You Ever Wonder (By far one of my FAVORITES!)
Here's everything you'd like to say to your children about how much you love them and most of all how special they are to God. Just In Case You Ever Wonder wraps your children in its warm message of love, comfort, and protection.

Even though Valentine's Day is a special holiday that celebrates love,
God's love is something we can celebrate all year long.

Oh, Little Critter!!!! We LOVEDLOVEDLOVED the Little Critter books! THANK YOU for reminding me of them and all the hours we spent enjoying them!

I Love You, Stinky Face? That one I have to see if they have at the library -- it sounds too cute not to read.

Just in Case You Ever Wonder is SO sweet. I have that one. And I'll have to check out the Froggy Valentine book. Mini-me likes the other Froggy book we have.

our 2nd or 3rd valentine's day together, i got tommy the book "guess how much i love you". anywhere that had big brown hare, i typed out "tommy" and taped it over b.b.h. and anywhere it said little brown hare, i typed out "suzanne" and taped over l.b.h.

i now have the book in mary peyton's room and love going back and looking at it!

of course - one year for Christmas, we gave his mom and aunt (who is like his other mom) the "love you forever" books.

We like the Stinky Face books too. And we always cry when we read Love You Forever. Hubby never has made it through...he used to read that one to Sissy a lot.

Wow. I can't believe how many books you have!! Just got back from the book fair at school, and now I'm just exhausted. So many choices... Looks like you have some really great recommendations though! We'll have to visit our library...
