Today I am sharing a curated list of Valentine’s Day books for kids that will give you the perfect excuse to cuddle up and SPREAD THE LOVE!
There is just something so sweet about celebrating Valentine’s Day when you have kids. It’s a special day when you get to be all lovey-dovey and musy-gushy and for the most part they eat it up because, well…they are little and they don’t mind. But we all know that probably won’t be the case forever.
