There is love in the air and with themed crafts and treats at every turn, it seems only natural that our reading material should also be Valentine’s Day themed. We already have several Valentine’s Day books that we love, but there is always room for more. So I rounded up 20 Valentine’s Day Books Kids Ages 1 – 9 that we own or I am considering adding to our library.
I included the recommended ages from the publisher, however, in most cases I think the books are good for younger too. For example, my two year old LOVES Pinkalicious.
Valentine’s Day Books Kids Ages 1-9
- It’s Valentine’s Day (I Can Read Book 3) – My new little reader is all about the “I Can Read” books these days, so we have to add this to our library. (Ages 4-8)
- Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew #12: Valentine’s Day Secret – I added this to the list to have something for the big kids. Plus I loved Nancy Drew books when I was a girl, so I think this is a must-read. (Ages 6-9)
- Pinkalicious: Pink of Hearts – Because my daughters ADORE all things Pinkalicious! (Ages 4-8)
- OLIVIA and the Perfect Valentine – Another favorite character in my house. (Ages 3-7)
- Amelia Bedelia’s First Valentine – This is from the new series of Amelia Bedelia when Amelia was a little girl. Sounds cute to me. (Ages 4-8)
