Valentine’s Day is next week, and what better way to celebrate than by giving your child a new book! These children’s books represent all kinds of love out there—from the love you have for your family to first love.

Love Monster, by Rachel Bright

This cute story tells the story of the Love Monster, who is just trying to find someone to love him for who he is. It’s a great story to teach kids the value of true love and not judging anyone by their appearance!

I Love You Stinky Face, by Lisa McCourt

This book is about a little boy who asks his mother if she would love him, even if he turned into a super-stinky skunk. It’s a great tale about the unconditional love of parenthood, and a perfect way to let your little one know how loved she is on Valentine’s Day!

Everyone Says I Love You, illustrated by Beegee Tolpa

This pop-up book teaches kids how to say “I love you” in different languages from around the world! Its beautiful, eye-catching design will be enough to draw you in—and exchanging “I love you”s with your child will make it an entirely worthy read.

Love is You and Me, by Monica Sheehan

This book explains love in any and all of its forms, even between dog and mouse. It is one of my favorites, with a great story and cute illustrations that you and your child will be able to go back to again and again!
