2012-04-18_14-49-26_453

(Little mouse wants a kiss from someone way up high! His tower looks pretty precarious, doesn't it? A fun simple story.)

Activity: In the Valentine Forest

 
2013-02-12_11-32-02_43

(ala 'In the Dark Dark Forest' this valentines forest holds a castle, with a room, with a dresser, with a box ...all valentine of course, and in the box is a Kiss! ...or a frog, or chocolates, depending on which page I flip to. We do the progression three time. The kids proclaimed it a magic box!)


Book: Waking Beauty – Jane Yolen

 
waking-beauty

(A bit wordy, but fun enough that it still holds the kids attention. Great as a two-person read.)


Activity: A Circle is not a Valentine
from the book by H. Werner Zimmermann

 

(The kids had so much fun with this. They were pretty good at describing the shape of a heart... it has two blumpitys on top, of course!)


Book: Love Monster – Rachel Bright

 
lovemonster

(Really fun pictures, and a cute story.  I did skip a few pages that were a bit two visually complex for storytime, and the kids really liked it.)


Activity: Valentines Craft

 

(Then everyone got to make valentines of their own to give away.)
