12 Must Read Valentine's Day Books for Kids

Posted by Lori Ferguson on

One of my favorite parts of our playroom and my daughter's bedroom are the bookshelves on the walls. I love to regularly change out the books to inspire her imagination, try to get her interested in new subjects & teach her exciting new things! It's especially fun to change these up for holidays.

I always like to add some texture and interest with little toys such as her Maileg mice, knitted wire shapes/words, tiny potted succulents and cute garlands to fit the theme. 

I've created a list of fun Valentine's Day books for kids along with quick and easy links to purchase these on Amazon! Shopping just doesn't get any easier than that.
