Vincent and the Night

These Valentine Day-themed selections range from familiar characters to new and delightful creations.

Splat the Cat: Funny Valentine is the second lift-the-flap book to feature the fuzzy feline. It is February 14, and Splat wants to give his special kitten friend a valentine. Under each flap little ones will find hidden treasures of wisdom.

Fancy Nancy: Nancy Clancy, Secret Admirer is the second book in this series. Nancy and her best friend, Bree, are thinking about love because they've been studying the human heart in science class. Nancy is a romance detective and wants to unravel the mysteries of love--in the head and the heart. But the case is a bit more difficult to solve than Nancy or Bree thought.

An Awesome Book of Love describes many types of love: love between a dinosaur and a jet; the attraction between spring and fall; and the relationship between the sky and a river. Author Dallas Clayton has created a sweet little book describing the feelings of love for little children.

Mia: The Sweetest Valentine is about Mia, Anna and Ruby celebrating Valentine's Day with a special party. The party has everything: valentines--of course--balloons, streamers, and even a box of sweets that the terrifically generous Mia shares with her friends. The day is flawless, and Mia is all smiles until realizing that the box of chocolates was for her mother and not her.

When My Baby Dreams of Fairy Tales follows up Adele Enersen's When My Baby Dreams and, like its predecessor, combines photographs with text to create a unique look at what might be inside your baby's head when he or she sleeps.

These are fun and stimulating books for readers four to eight years old (Nancy Clancy is aimed at the 6 to 10-year-old), witty and challenging Valentine's Day fun to keep readers enthralled for hours.
