Though this book was all Valentine's Day related poem's it was still overall a very good book. I liked the way this book was written because each poem seems like a mini chapter to me hearing about what multiple characters are dong on Valentine's Day. The one reasons I didn't like the book (which isn't a very big reason) was just that I was a little confused if all of the short poems were about this one little boy or if they were about multiple kids. I enjoyed the book over all because the poems were all catchy and had nice rhyming words in them to read.… (more)

SUMMARY
This poetry book includes various short poems that relate to Valentine's Day.

REVIEW
I really enjoy the watercolor pictures that accompany these poems. I think it definitely makes the poems more engaging and fun to read. I also like the playful nature of these poems. For instance, there is a poem entitled "I Made a Giant Valentine" where a girl makes a giant valentine for a friend, but does not want to give it to him anymore because he was mean to her. She says, "I'm taking home that valentine to give my cat instead." I think this is a great resource for students to learn about the traditions of Valentine's Day.… (more)
