The Yuckiest, Stinkiest, Best Valentine Ever by Brenda A. Ferber
Leon has a crush. A BIG crush. A let-her-cut-in-line-at-the-water-fountain crush. And he’s made the perfect valentine.
But this valentine has other ideas.
“Love is yucky, kid! Valentine’s Day is all about candy!” the card yells, and leaps out the window.
Here is a totally fresh take on the most complex holiday of them all. Saying “I love you” has never been so yuck or so sweet.
A Kiss Like This by Mary Murphy
Buzzy, bubbly, long or small, whose is the best kiss of all?
Can you guess?
A giraffe kiss is very tall — just turn the page and see! Elephant kisses are long, of course, while tiny mice and bubbly fish have kisses all their own. Using a clever split-page format that makes for charming surprises, author-illustrator Mary Murphy shares a series of animal kisses that are sure to have babies and toddlers gurgling, giggling, smiling, and leaning over for their kisses, too.
A lip-smacking hug of a book, perfect for sharing with those you love!
Great for ages 2-4.
