Warm hearts with kids’ books

February 9, 2016

It's February, which means Valentine's Day, and what better way to celebrate your love for your kids than with a new book? Books are way better than chocolate!

First is a board book version of a children's book, "Plant a Kiss" by Amy Krouse Rosenthal with illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds (HarperCollins, $7.99, newborn to 4.) Little Miss plants a kiss and watches it grow. She waters it, gives it sunlight, and waits. And waits. A sprout begins to grow. And she decides to spread the love around wherever she goes. A sweet story about kindness and good deeds, this board book is a good one to 'grow' with baby!

Fan favorite Pete the Cat gets romantic in "Pete the Cat's Groovy Guide to Love" by James Dean and Kimberly Dean (HarperCollins, $12.99, ages 4 to 8.) Pete shares some groovy quotes about love, from Charles Dickens to Pablo Picasso, to Plato and John Lennon and Paul McCartney. With illustrations of the funky cat himself with quotes by him, this is a fun book that will feed the romantic in everyone!

Bear and Duck have to figure a way to work out their day in "I Love You Already!" by Jory John and Benji Davies (HarperCollins, $17.99, ages 4 to 8.) Bear is looking forward to a day alone. But Duck wants to spend the day together. He could tell Bear his life story or Bear could tell him his. They will be so much closer if they do! They should go for a walk, at least Duck thinks so. Duck wants Bear to like him, and Bear keeps assuring him he already does. But he also needs quiet time to himself. Can they find a way to work it out? This is a funny book about two friends and their differences, and may be reassuring for when friends (or siblings) just want some time alone.

Two worms plan a wedding in "Worm Loves Worm" by J.J. Austrian with illustrations by Mike Curato (HarperCollins, $17.99, ages 4 to 8.) Two worms fall in love and want to get married. Cricket offers to marry them. Beetle will be the Best Beetle. The bees will be the Bride's Bees. They need rings (to wear as belts because no fingers.) Will the wedding go without a hitch? This is a cute story of love and insects for kids to enjoy.
