Valentine Unit For Kids

Do you want to keep your kids learning and having fun this February? If so, keep reading below for our favorite ideas to get you started.

The first thing we recommend for you to do with your kids is read aloud. Reading opens up a world of possibilities and can be an important stepping stone in their education. It can help them with their imagination, learn new vocabulary words, and improve their focus.

Below are some of the best Valentine’s Day books for kids:

Love From The Crayons If your kids love any of the Crayon books, they’ll want to read this Valentine version where the crayons explore the bright colors and subtle shades of love.

The Invisible String – This is a sweet story all children will want to hear. It’s about a mother who tells her two children that they’re all connected by an invisible string.

Little Blue Truck’s Valentine – Join Little Blue Truck as he delivers Valentine’s Day cards to all his farm animal friends. As he does, he wonders, will anyone give one to him?
