Valentine's Day is always such a fun school day holiday. There are Valentines to make/address and Valentine Mail Boxes to decorate. Then there are the heart shaped cookies and chocolate kisses. Themed days like Valentine's Day are great ways to encourage reading in children as the fun and excitement for the holiday builds. I've gathered some great suggestions that will draw your kids into reading without them even realizing that as they celebrate a holiday, they are building reading skills as well. An extra bonus is that many of these books about love can help you teach your children lessons about love, kindness and healthy human interactions. And, remember, books make great Valentine's gifts!
For the Youngest (Especially if they have older siblings, they want to join the fun as well!)
Primary School Age (They will probably like Splat the Cat, too).
Second to Fourth Graders (Give or Take)
So, there you go! 18 books to get you started enjoying Valentine's Day with your kids. If you have more suggestions, drop them in the comments!
