20+ Best Valentine’s Day Books for Kids

Feb 05, 2024

Valentine's Day is a wonderful opportunity to teach kids valuable social-emotional lessons about love for the special ones in their lives — like family, friends, classmates, and pets. One of the best ways to do this is through books that capture the sweetness of the holiday.  

These sweet Valentine's Day children's books feature lovable characters, meaningful storylines, and giggle-worthy moments for kids of all interests, whether they love Peppa Pig, Clifford, or dinosaurs. There are also many books that aren't specific to Valentine's Day that make great gifts and show your little one how much you love them. 

Try Daddy's Hugs and Snuggles — a heartfelt ode to the special love between a father and child. From sharing a quiet moment over the comics section at breakfast to playing at bathtime before tucking into bed, snuggle up with your child and celebrate the daily joys of parenthood with this sweet story. 

There is also Pig the Pug: Love Pug, a charming board book about the things Pig the Pug loves most. The silly illustrations and sweet messages will inspire your child to talk about who and what they love. Once your child finishes reading this fun-loving story, continue the conversation by helping them create a list of things they love. Writing down things they are grateful for will inspire them to make connections between the text and real life.
