Valentine Reads For The Very Young

Reviewing Love-Filled Reads for Little Ones

Children's books

The perfect way to introduce small children to holidays is through books. Children love to be read to and board books work great for the babies and toddlers age group.

Let's look at a couple Valentine-themed board books for the youngest children.

Lovey Things by Dr. Seuss

Lovey Things is a sturdy board book about  things Things love.  Little ones will learn about sharing and caring, smiling and hugging, and blowing kisses from those two favorites - Thing One and Thing Two - from Dr. Seuss's 'Cat in the Hat' stories.  A very sweet rhyming way for little ones to learn about the loving ways of Valentine's Day and be introduced to the magic of Dr. Seuss.

Recommended for ages 1 – 4 years, Lovely Things is highly recommended by parents and grandparents. It is an Amazon Best Seller currently listed at #43 in the Top 100, and is #1 in both Poetry for Early Learning and Stories in Verse. It is also #7 in children's Valentine's Day books.

Love From the Very Hungry Caterpillar

Fans of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and the wonderful world of Eric Carle will love this sweet book.  A Valentine's Day gift that gives all the reasons why that someone special makes the world a better and brighter place. 

"You are the cherry on my cake; you make the sun shine brighter; you make my heart flutter."

Filled with a range of images from the World of Eric Carle, and featuring the Very Hungry Caterpillar, this board book is for reading ages 1 – 3 and ranks #4 in Children's Valentine's Day Books. 


So, to introduce your youngest children to the Valentine's Day holiday in a fun way, let them meet Thing One & Thing Two through Dr. Seuss and The Very Hungry Caterpillar with Eric Carle. 

Happy Valentine's Day Reading!

  1. Excellent choices for little ones.

  2. We love books and Valentine's Day! You picked two of my son's favorite authors to feature too. Who doesn't LOVE Eric Carle, the Hungry Caterpillar and Dr. Seuss! Of course, we all enjoy receiving candy and cards on Valentines, but one of these books would be so much better or a great companion to the candy.

    1. The Hungry Caterpillar and Dr. Seuss are always favorites. Thanks for your visit to my Valentine books for little ones, Sylvestermouse

  3. These are such wonderful books that would make perfect Valentine’s Day gifts for children!

    1. I agree, Margaret. Thanks for your visit to my story.

  4. I can't believe I've never read that Dr. Suess book! I had a full collection - this makes a lovely addition to a valentine's gift basket as well

  5. Reading to the youngsters is the very best way to show them and begin their lifetime of reading possibilities. I love your choices and agree with you, books are the start and the young love the cuddle time while reading with you.

  6. These books sound wonderful choices for children and lovely to make reading together a special time. Thank you for your review and recommendation
