In honor of Valentine’s Day, a list of my favorite picture books with a love-theme.
Some new books I’m reading with my toddler these days… and ones I’ve saved from a decade ago when I read to my older daughter:
By Salina Yoon
My sister recently gave us this sweet books, about a bear who finds a lost stuffed toy bunny in the forest. He begins to worry. After all, the stuffed bunny must feel lonely and want to return safely to its owner and home! But as Bear diligently searches for the bunny’s owner, posting notices high and low, he begins to grow attached to his new friend…

Meet Bear. He’s exhausted. All he wants is to go to sleep. Meet Duck, Bear’s persistent next-door neighbor. All he wants is to hang out . . . with Bear.
A Letter to Amy
by Ezra Jack Keats
I LOVE everything by Ezra Jack Keats. A master of ingenious collages, Keats has written and/or illustrated more than 85 books for children. In this classic, Peter is having a birthday party, and he’s asked all of his friends to come. But Amy is a special friend because she’s a girl, so Peter decides to send her a special invitation. When he rushes out in a thunderstorm to mail it, he bumps smack into Amy herself and knocks her to the ground. Will she come to his party now?
by Don Freeman
This sweet stuffed bear waits hopefully in a toy department for a home… which he finds with a little girl who doesn’t mind that he’s not perfect.
There’s a Wocket in My Pocket
by Dr. Seuss
I still have my copy of this book from when I was little! I love how this little boy finds friends in secret places: like “the nupboard in the cupboard, ghairs beneath the stairs, and the bofa on the sofa.”
