Books for Valentine's Day and Giveaway reminder.

Hey everyone. How was your Monday. It was 100's Day today. The kids had a lot of fun. It also snowed here today and so we had indoor recess during the morning and at lunch. Are you gearing up for Valentine's Day yet? We are making a Valentine's project tomorrow. Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, I thought a list of books would be in order.  I have some of these in my library and there are a few I am excited to get! It is great to see some new books are available because I tend to read the same old ones. . .let me know if you have a favorite to add to the list.

 "Knock, knock!
"Who's there?
Peas who?
Peas be my Valentine!
Valentine's Day is sweeter than ever in this hearty collection of knock-knock jokes. Lift the flaps and laugh your heart out with a group of kids and a pair of lovesick hamsters. You'll be tickled pink!"

"There are so many things in this world for which to be thankful - the sun and the moon, flowers and raindrops, family and friends. Children will delight in counting their own blessings as they follow the pages of this colorfully illustrated, easy-to-read book."

"One day it rains hearts, and Cornelia Augusta catches them. Each heart is special in its own way, and Cornelia Augusta knows exactly who to send them to."

"He can't even think straight when she's around. When Frogilina smiles at him through the monkey bars, Froggy falls smack on his head-bonk! So with Valentine's Day just a week away, Froggy gets busy making an extra-special valentine. The fifth book about the irrepressible Froggy, this is sure to keep children giggling with delight".

Who Will Be My Valentine This Year?
"A Valentine's Day story about finding your own special sweetheart.

Tomorrow is February 14th and Hippo is looking for a valentine, but all of the animals she asks-Leopard, Dolphin, Butterfly, Elephant and more-give reasons as to why they aren't good matches for her. Will Hippo have to celebrate Valentine's Day alone?"

Snowy Valentine
"Step out into a snowy Valentine’s Day with Jasper the bunny as he searches the forest valley for a special gift for his loved one."

Lilly's Chocolate Heart
"Lilly has only one chocolate heart left from Valentine's Day, and it's bedtime, so where is the best place to put her chocolate heart until tomorrow?" 

Be Mine
"Whooo Loves You?
Hey Foxy!
You need a Bear Hug!
Love is in the air and these cheerful creations by Brenda Ponnay are the perfect way to share a little love with a child in your life."

"When Mrs. Mousely asks her class to make valentines, Clayton and Desmond decide to make one together and give it to their teacher as a surprise. But things don't go as planned. First Clayton puts too much glitter on the card. Then Desmond puts on too many hearts. Soon the friends are arguing and they rip the card in half. "I'm going to make my own valentine!" they both say and go home in a huff.
But then Desmond and Clayton realize that by working together they can make the biggest, best valentine ever!"
