Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Five plastic candy hearts ("Puppy love"; "You send me"; etc.) shine through the die-cut pages of Five Little Candy Hearts by William Boniface, illus. by Lynn Adams, told in singsong rhyme. As with earlier books in the series, the quintet of hearts counts down with a flip of the page, to a pop-up surprise at the end. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Candy hearts with their funny little sayings show through the cover of this sturdy book. The first heart, which says "You send me," is destined for the mailman. The second, "Puppy Love." is for the young girl's dog, and so its goes until she gets to the last one. It says "Be Mine," and the final page opens into a pop-up. This totally innocuous little offering is just the type of sweet treat young kids will enjoy on Valentine's Day. It does not count down from five to one, but that really will not be the focus of most young listeners. The only thing that might be a bit off putting is the big warning on the cover about choking hazards for kids under three (I assume it's targeted at those who might try to pull the plastic hearts off the book and swallow them.). 2003, Price Stern Sloan/Penguin, Ages 3 to 5.
