Evolved Publishing brings you the sixth of the "Bird Brain Books" by Emlyn Chand, "Vicky Finds a Valentine." This children's picture book, with full color illustrations by artist Noelle Giffin, is for kids 3 to 6 years old.
Vicky is happy young lovebird with a great life as the Johnson family pet. When her human Marie starts making Valentine's Day cards for her first grade class, Vicky is definitely intrigued.
"Valentine's Day is very special," Marie explains. "It only comes once a year, and when it comes, you have to tell everyone how much you love them. But most of all, you have to find a special friend to be your Valentine."
A day about love? That's fantastic! Now who can be Vicky's special Valentine?
A search begins as Vicky asks anyone who will listen to be her Valentine. Unfortunately, the pretty dolly ignores her, and so do the people in the glass box--and she's not sure she can trust the family cat's intentions. Will the day come to a close before Vicky can find a Valentine?
There's only one way to find out: join Vicky in her hunt for love in this special holiday edition of the color-illustrated Bird Brain Books.

I read this book as part of a challenge I joined. Another charming holiday volume of the Bird Brain books. In this story the main character is a pet and wants to find a perfect Valentine. Through the course of the story she gets sad about the people, animals and things that don't seem to want to be her Valentine. But she learns a lovely lesson in friendship...that our true friends will always want to be our Valentine and love us. These books would be so great for elementary kids from Kindergarten through third grade.
In Valentine's Day, everyone is looking for their Valentine, including this cute lovebird, Vicky. This story portray a true friendship. For parents, this book is perfect for your children because of the lighthearted mood and the lesson they will earn after reading this story. I'm actually surprised while reading this that Vicky loves her owner more than her freedom. That shows her true loyalty. These are great values to teach your children. I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
Another Great Bird Brain Book For Kids I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review. Everyone needs love and it's important we let others know we love them. This is especially true during Valentine's Day when we get an opportunity to share our love with our loved ones. Emlyn Chand shares this concept in a unique and sweet way with children in Vicky Finds a Valentine. Without sounding like a broken record, I can't recommend Ms. Chand's Bird Brain Books highly enough for parents. They are well written, very well illustrated and lots of fun for beginning readers between the ages of 6-8 years old. Vicky, a love bird, is happily living with a family when her favorite human, Marie, begins making Valentines Day Cards and shares how important it is to have a special friend on Valentines Day. Determined to find her own "special" friend, Vicky manages to get out of her cage and goes on her own "excursion" to find a special friend. I really enjoyed how Ms. Chand illustrates that to have a friend, you have to be willing to be a friend and Vicky is very willing. As Vicky soon learns though, not everyone is suited to be a "friend" and sometimes someone who acts like they want to be your friend, has their own secret agenda. Will Vicky discover who her special friend is on Valentines Day? You'll have to read Vicky Finds A Valentine to find out. I think this is a really cute story and look forward to reading more of the Bird Brain Books.
