10. A charming picture book about a peculiar day when it rained hearts, from the illustrator of If You Gave a Mouse a Cookie.


If the plot of this book sounds familiar, you might remember it by its original title, Four Valentines in a Rainstorm.

Promising review: "Cornelia Augusta is a thoughtful main character who takes a surprise that life has given her and uses her time, energy, and imagination to make the most of it. These are wonderful traits to promote to children. Also the book doesn't over-explain why Cornelia gave a particular valentine to a particular friend, so there is room for your little reader to come to her or his own conclusions. It also incorporates the themes of seizing the moment and accepting change (it only ever rains hearts once) which is a lovely life lesson as well." —Stiletto

Get it from Amazon for $5.25, Barnes & Noble for $5.83, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

11. A box of gummy ice cream cones or butterflies, because no Valentine's Day is complete without a sugar high.

Grosset & Dunlap

Promising review: "As a kindergarten teacher, it's impossible not to be a fan of all things Eric Carle. From his artwork, to his beautiful, accessible text, each book is truly a treasure. The latest from the Hungry Caterpillar is no exception! This is a perfect gift for any young reader... for Valentine's Day or any other occasion that you want them to know they are loved. (That would be every day!) Also very appropriate for a child to give to a teacher or other special adult in their lives... a beautiful expression of love. Thank you, Mr. Carle, for yet another gem to add to my collection." —D. Burgess
