Valentine’s Day can inspire entertaining storytimes for preschoolers Although the holiday is based on concepts that may be a little confusing to preschoolers, I try to focus on the basic theme of Valentine’s Day which for children is friendship. We read stories about friends, have candy, and make hand-made valentines like the characters in One Zillion Valentines.
London, Jonathan. FROGGIE’S FIRST KISS. Froggie has a crush on the new girl in class.
Modell, Frank. ONE ZILLION VALENTINES. Marvin and Milton make and sell handmade valentines.
Stock, Catherine. SECRET VALENTINE. A little girl makes valentines for her family.
Brown, Marc. ARTHUR’S VALENTINE. Arthur has a secret admirer.
Winthrop, Elizabeth. LIZZIE AND HAROLD. Lizzie thinks only a girl can be her best friend, until she meets Harold.
Hutchins, Pat. TITCH AND DAISY. Titch hides during a party because he can’t find his best friend Daisy.
James, Simon. LEON AND BOB. Leon and his imaginary friend Bob are constant companions until a new boy moves in next door.
