Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day” by Gail Gibbons, 1986
Although this book is a little “dated” with illustrations, the message really is relevant for our modern-day, American-celebrated Valentine’s Day holiday.

So if you are looking for a traditional Valentine’s Day picture book that gives a little historical background and explanation of modern-day traditions, this book will work. This is in a very similar style to Gibbon’s book called St. Patrick’s Day which I also like.
Young children being read this book most likely will not even pick up on the dated aspect.

I bought this for my son this Valentine's Day! I cannot wait to read it every year.
