Regardless of your personal relationship status, Valentine’s Day is always fun to celebrate with young students! Here are some favorite read alouds:
Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch by Eileen Spinelli and Paul Yalowitz.
This is such a wonderful story about the power of love and friendship!
The Valentine Bears by two favorites, Eve Bunting and Jan Brett.
Since the bears are always hibernating, they don’t get to celebrate until Mrs. Bear plans a surprise. It’s interesting to contrast this book’s illustrations to Brett’s later style.
Love, Splat by Rob Scotton
Splat likes Kitten more than fish sticks and ice cream, but she calls him smelly. What’s a cat with a valentine crush to do, especially when he has a rival suitor?
Just looking at Scotton’s illustrations makes me smile.
Any others to share?
