12 Valentine’s Day Books for Kids

January 28, 2023

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and I am searching for gift ideas for my kids. Ever since they were babies, we have given them a new book for the holiday — some years they get a love-specific story, and other years they get a new paperback that they’ve been wishing for.

We’ve amassed a sweet collection of Valentines Day books, but I’ve noticed it’s getting harder and harder to find options without TV/movie characters. Not that there’s anything inherently wrong with beloved characters, but I know my nine-year-old won’t be thrilled if I pick up a Daniel Tiger book for Valentine’s Day.

In this post, you can find some of our favorite titles from over the years. If you have beloved Valentine’s Day books at your house, I would love for you to share them with us in the comments below!

NOTE: This will be a living list, as some of our beloved favorites go out of print and new favorites are released. Please pin this post, and check back each year for updated recommendations.
