Heart books we like to read in February

My theme for February is all about hearts, love, and of course–Valentine’s Day. Posted below are the books that we have been snuggling up and reading this month.


The Day it Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond: I kept hearing reviews of this book all over the blogosphere this year, but unfortunately my local library doesn’t own a copy. I took a risk and bought it for the Sweet Bee for her Valentine’s surprise (I rarely buy kids books without previewing them myself first) and I am so glad I did. It is a really sweet story.

The Biggest Valentine Ever by Steven Kroll

Plant a Kiss by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Lilly’s Chocolate Heart by Kevin Henkes


A Kiss Like This by Mary Murphy: The Sweet Bee found this on the shelf at the library. It is a really cute story about all kinds of kisses (giving plenty of opportunities while we read for mom to bestow kisses on her cute little kiddos!)

Mouse’s First Valentine by Lauren Thomposn

Happy Valentine’s Day, Mouse! by Laura Numeroff

Goose Needs a Hug by Tad Hills

Won’t You Be My Kissaroo? by Joanne Ryder


My Heart is Like a Zoo by Michael Hall: This book was a favorite of my little Z boy. We spent a morning creating heart shaped animals inspired by this book.
