Read an Excerpt

There they were, fifteen black valentine cards waiting to be filled with nice valentine poems. They were sitting on the kitchen table in a pile as high as Gilbert's nose. Mrs. Byrd had told them to write something nice for each classmate, because Valentine's Day was about liking each other.

Gilbert liked Patty a lot. She had smiley eyes and a silly laugh that made Gilbert feel silly, too. He picked out the biggest card and wrote inside:

Roses are red,
violets are blue.
Your eyes are nice,
and I like you.
Gilbert

Gilbert also liked Frank. Frank let Gilbert use his baseball mitt once when Gilbert forgot to bring his own. On Frank's card he wrote:

Your name is Frank.
It isn't Hank.
You lent me your mitt,
so you I thank.
Gilbert

This is fun, Gilbert thought. He continued to write nice valentine poems until there were two cards left. One for Lewis and one for Margaret.

Gilbert didn't want to write a nice poem for Lewis. Lewis once tweaked Gilbert's nose until it turned red.

He didn't want to write a nice poem for Margaret, either. Margaret made fun of Gilbert's glasses.

...So he didn't write nice poems.Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink. Copyright © by Diane deGroat. Reprinted by permission of HarperCollins Publishers, Inc. All rights reserved. Available now wherever books are sold.

The art work is beautiful. The length of the story is perfect for my daughter who just turned 4. The content may be tough for a 4 year old child to understand but that just gives us a chance to talk about it.

It's Valentine's Day. Gilbert is making valentine cards for his class. But he doesn't want to make one for Lewis and Margaret. Because they did stuff to him he did't like. So he writes mean stuff to them. But he doesn't want them to do mean stuff to him again. So he signs their names on the cards. I like this book because it is funny and it could really happen!

This is a book about an opposum named Gilbert who wrote two mean Valentines cards for two classmates who had bullied him and signed their names. None of Gilbert's classmates want to be near him when they find out what he did so Gilbert wrote new Valentine's poems and is forgiven in time for the Valentine party.I love the full page illustrations and the story has a good lesson to treat others nicely.This would be a good book to read around Valentines day. after reading this I would encourage students to write something nice to their classmates.
