Valentine's Day Books for Preschoolers: 6 of My FavoritesWhen teaching preschool and then staying at home with my boys, I looked forward to when February rolled around so I could pull my beloved collection of Valentine's Day books off the shelf. While clearly there's not as many books for this holiday as there are for Halloween, Christmas, and Easter, I definitely had some favorites I loved reading to the kids each year. Here are 6 Valentine's Day books for preschoolers that should become the heart of your collection:
1. The Day It Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond
2. Happy Valentine's Day, Mouse! by Laura Numeroff
3. Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink by Diane de Groat
