A String of Hearts
I enjoyed this book very much. The illustrations are lovely and the Valentine's Day story is sweet. It makes kids of all ages think about the people in their life and appreciate the little things about each and every one of them. Sometimes you never know just how many friends you have! The last page gives a recap of how Valentine's Day came to be and how the holiday has changed over the years. Great information! 5 out of 5 stars.
Valentines come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Some are homemade and some are store-bought. Some are funny and some are not. Sam wants to give just the right valentine to the most popular girl in the class, Tiffany. But what kind is the right kind? Mary Ann helps Sam figure out how to make all sorts of valentines. But will Tiffany even notice Sam if he gives her a special valentine?
Laura Malone Elliott and Lynn Munsinger’s charming story shows how the best friends are often the ones you may not know you have—until Valentine’s Day!—and even a simple string of hearts can show a friend how special he is. (Goodreads)
