For Valentine’s day, I enjoy surprising my little one with a book. I started doing this when she was just a baby, and I plan to continue to do it. It’s always a perfect gift for a young little one! Thus, I have created a list of the perfect kids’ books for Valentine’s Day, so you might be able to get one for your little one as well.

We love Pete the Cat books! This particular one has great reviews. The book is about how Pete initially thinks Valentine’s Day isn’t cool but later changes his mind. Pete realizes that there are a lot of special cats in his life, so he decides to make Valentine’s day cards for his friends and family. He realized, though, that he forgot to make one for one very special cat!
This book does come with a poster, stickers, and valentine’s cards.
Curious George books are always a good pick! In this story, George is celebrating Valentine’s Day by decorating and making cards. However, as per usual with Curious George, there is some mischief that occurs along the way!
This book has amazing reviews! This book explores a full range of emotions such as happiness, sadness, anger, etc., and how they make us feel physically. It also helps the reader articulate and identify the emotions that one is feeling. Thus, this book is great for emotional development in toddlers and preschoolers!
This is from another classic series, the Very Hungry Caterpillar. This book features amazing images from Eric Carle, as well as the Very Hungry Caterpillar. The book explores all the reasons why someone special makes our world better.
This story uses short and simple rhyming text, which is great for babies and toddlers who may not be quite ready for longer length stories. And because it’s a board book, it’s great for little ones, as it allows them to more easily turn the pages. The story focuses on little llama and how he shows his love with hugs and cards for his friends and family.
In this story, Ollie is looking for a valentine. His friends all of valentine’s, but Ollie wonders who will be his. However, he does eventually come upon his Valentine. This book has nice artwork, as there is shiny foil hearts and great illustrations throughout the story.
This is a great book for celebrating the love you and your little one share with each other. There are many tactile elements that allow your baby to explore many textures and develop their senses. For example, they can touch soft bunnies and bears. Thus, this book enhances sensory development and is also great for developing early language skills.
People need love from others, but it’s hard to figure out how to love someone the way they want to be loved. In this story, love is visualized as a pink spot and explores the different ways you can love someone (such as listening to another person and being kind).
Splat the Cat wants to give a present to a special someone on Valentine’s Day. His classmates help Splat, which makes for the best Valentine’s Day!
I hope this list is helpful and that you can start a new tradition with your little one! I definitely enjoy buying a new book each year to give to my daughter, so we can read it together.
