This Valentine's Day, Surprise Your "Little Loved Ones"
With A Good Book


Growing up, what did Valentine's Day mean to you? Do you remember craft-paper hearts and anticipating cards from secret admirers, or collecting candy from loved ones, or coining puns about love for each and every one of your friends? Like Valentines, books, because of their endearing combination of words and art, are a special way to show the kids in your life your affection.


Each year, we at BJF specially select our favorite books for Valentine's Day, and this year, our advisory board joined in the effort! Here are the Brooke Jackman Foundation's Top Ten Valentine's Day Children's Books for 2013.
