Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A teacher, Mrs. Bloom, shares with her class the history of Valentine's Day. She explains that it is a time of love and friendship. The children decide to have a party and parents bring in heart-shaped cookies and others bring lemonade and cards to share with everyone. When Minnie and Pip were walking home from school they see their older neighbor and wonder if older people ever get valentine cards. The family decides to make special valentines for all the individuals in the neighborhood. The story goes on from there and many different kinds of cards are discussed and are depicted when they are completed. This story gives a warm and thoughtful message to children and the illustrations really add to the enjoyment of the story. Children will enjoy looking at all the valentines throughout the book. This would be an excellent book for the classroom and can be used as a guide for a classroom project of possibly making valentines for nursing homes and hospitals. Wallace does an excellent job in creating a delightful story as well as sending an important message of doing something kind for others. 2004, Marshall Cavendish, Ages 5 to 9.
