25+ Valentine’s Day Children’s Books

25+ Valentine’s Day Children Books

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and as a student and a teacher, Valentine’s Day was always my favorite classroom party. When I was a kid I loved writing out Valentine’s and giving them to my friends and crushes. As a teacher I loved watching my students experience this. You better believe when my son is in elementary school and he has a Valentine’s Day Party, I’ll be there!!

Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday for kids. Why you ask? Because they think love is gross.

I promise you, I have never heard louder ewwwws and laughs out of my students than when I read them a book about someone being in love. It’s hilarious.

Whether your child is in elementary school already or is still a toddler like mine, I can promise you that the whole family will be full of belly laughs when reading these books. It’s not even so much the content being funny, it’s the kids’ reactions that take it over the top.

Below you will find 25+ Valentine’s Day Children’s Books I read to my students every year, a few new ones I picked up for my son, and as always, my wish list! Enjoy!
