To celebrate Valentine’s Day with our little lady, we’re sharing some sweet children’s books, filled with love to keep you cozy and happy for the rest of this winter. Most of these choices would also make great choices for a baby shower any time of the year!
Love You Hoo by Rachel Bright
Snuggle up with your little one and share a story of the neverending bond between a parent, grandparent, or any caregiver and child. Big Owl reminds Little Owl about all the special times they’ve had together and all the exciting adventures the future holds. This book sends the message every child deserves to know: that they are, and always will be, loved.
Lots of Love Little One by Sandra Magsamen
I love you as you sleep at night and play through the days. I’ll love you yesterday, today, forever and always. This is such a sweet read-aloud and it includes adorable pictures. I especially love the page that shares how to say I love you in multiple languages. If you’re a fan of Welcome Little One, you’ll fall in love with this addition from Sandra Magsamen.
Animally by Lynn Parrish Sutton
Whether you love them “hugely like a whale,” or “shyly like a quail,” this adverb adventure through the animal kingdom is perfect to share with all the birdily, bugily, animally loved people in your life. It is another perfect one for new parents and an instant favorite in most homes.
Cuddle Bear by Clare Freedman
Do you need cuddles, cheer- up hugs, or snuggle times to share? Then Cuddle Bear is made for you – a hug-you-happy bear! Meet Cuddle Bear – the unforgettable hero with hugs for everyone! If, like lion, panda, penguin or elephant, you’re feeling sad or lonely, never fear! Cuddle Bear has plenty of hugs to go around. It doesn’t matter if you’re big or tall, short or small, there’s one for every size!
Cuddle Bear’s Book of Hugs by Clare Freedman
The world is too big for just one Cuddle Bear! How can he deliver all the necessary hugs? Luckily, he has a plan: his Hug Academy, to teach lots of little teddy bears just how to cheer up children everywhere! Who doesn’t love hugs?
The Cuddle Bear Plush is also available to gift as a set.
Love You Always by Roger Priddy
This charming board book is a heart-warming story about love and friendship to share with your special one. There are tactile, heart-shaped holes on every page, with glitter and foil on the last page that my daughter especially loved. This is a cute book, filled with Valentine’s Day rhymes.
If you want something geared toward older children or to work through as a family, I recommend:
Do Nice, Be Kind, Spread Happy by Bernadette Russell
This activity book is a great way to encourage our kids to be more kind and considerate towards others. The book involves a “mission”, and then eighty activities to help spread happiness. Suggestions range from starting a coat drive to reading stories to parents or leaving baked goods for a friend or neighbor as an anonymous surprise.
If you have any of these books or decide to pick one up based on my recommendation, I’d love to hear what you think about it! Happy reading 🙂
