Looking for Love

Posted on Monday, February 12, 2018 by Erin

Valentine’s day can be a tricky day to explain to kids.  My favorite way to find descriptions of love is through books!

Love” by Emma Dodd is a beautiful picture book  that explains that love is so much more than hugs and presents. In her book, Dodd says that “Sometimes love is quiet and it needs no words at all.” After reading the book, can you think about ways your family shows love to each other?

Another great discussion starter is “Pete the Cat’s Groovy Guide to Love” by Kimberly and James Dean. What makes this picture book unique? It’s filled with quotes, and Pete then applies all the quotes to himself. Can you create a quote about love that describes your family? Which one is your favorite and why?

You can check out these books out at your nearest library or bookmobile!
