For children Valentine’s Day is about celebrating friends. Making and keeping friends is more complicated than handing out valentines though. You can find books to help young children with friendship in the Feelings section of the Children’s Room Parent Teacher Corner.
Children also like to read about friends. There are many examples of stories about friends. You can read children picture books like the George and Martha series, Henry and Amy which is about two friends who are very different, New Friends, True Friends, Stuck-like-glue Friends, or Paul Stewart’s books about Rabbit and Hedgehog.
For beginning readers there are stories like the classic Frog and Toad series or the newer Joe and Sparky series. For slightly older readers there are stories like those in the Amber Brown series, the Ivy and Bean series, or the book Marty McGuire which explores what happens when friends develop new interests.
