Children's LiteratureCut paper collages are used to create the pictures in this heart-shaped board book. A young girl is excited about her favorite holiday--Valentine's Day. It is time for hugs and kisses and plenty of candy treats. She and her friend are busy creating Valentine's Day cards with glitter, glue, crayons, and paper hearts. She makes one for Mommy and one for Dad and another for her friend. But the part she really likes best is getting a valentine in the mail. The family appears to be one of mixed heritage, and kids from just about any racial group should be able to identify with members of this family or the young girl's friend. 2006, Simon & Schuster, Ages 1 to 4.
