I firmly believe that when our kids are little, Valentines is more of a friendship day, or a day to show & share love from parent to child. So a lot of these books reflect that inclination. If you're interested in more adult-ish, romantic Valentines reads, than please join my online book club in reading Edenbrooke this month. :)
