Storytime Theme: Lots of Love

Love was in the air this week at our libraries! Every year, I do the same craft for Valentine’s and every year it turns out totally different!  The kids make homemade Valentine’s for someone they love!  The kids love this open ended craft!  I just give them junk and they create a treasure!

Books:

  • Guess How Much I Love You? by Sam McBratney (Right up to the moon and back! *wink*)
  • That’s Love by Sam Williams (This book takes the abstract notion of love and demonstrates the feeling it gives us.)
  • Love is a Handful of Honey by Giles Andreae (Explores the different ways we can show our love for others.)
  • Love, Splat by Rob Scotton (This one is cute, plus it introduced the topic of giving a card to someone for Valentine’s.)
  • I Love You So Much! by Carl Norac (Ever have something important to say and not sure when to say it?)

Activity:
