Valentine’s Day Picture Book Gifts for Little Readers

by Janssen Bradshaw

I think Valentine’s Day is such a little February blessing.

The big holidays are long since over, the glow of the new year is starting to fade, and winter still seems like it has a long time to go, with lots of time cooped up inside.

And then comes Valentine’s Day, with lots of celebrating, hearts, and happiness. It’s just about the best thing that could happen right smack in the middle of those long winter months.

My girls love Valentine’s Day and I’ve loved making it a festive occasion in our home the past few years.

I especially love adding to our Valentine’s Day book collection every year and gifting them each a book that they’ll enjoy reading over and over again, probably snuggled up with some hot chocolate.

If you’re looking for some fun Valentine’s Day book gifts for your little bookworms, here are some of my favorites.
