• sweet reads: valentine’s day books for kids

    My girls and I have nearly devoured every Valentine’s Day book in our public library this month; I like to think of it as calorie-free brain candy. If you’ve exhausted your fair share of “Mouse’s First Valentine” and “The Day It Rained Hearts,” here are some heartwarming children’s picture books that celebrate the power of love, as recommended by The Brooke Jackman Foundation, a non-profit that promotes literacy for at-risk children in NYC. Happy Valentine’s Day–and happy reading!
