I know I already did a Valentine’s Day gift round-up, but since there are so many sweet books out there I thought they deserved their own post! We’re keeping our Valentine’s Day gifts to a minimum this year, but I’m always excited to add a couple of books to the girls’ growing collection. Plus I might just have to track down the Shopkins Sweetheart Set for Mae because WHOA the girl is obsessed with those ridiculous toys.

14 modern children books about LOVE!

I made sure to include one book just for all the dads out there (#10), because my poor husband is always changing “mommy” to “daddy” when reading the girls their bedtime stories. It makes me happy to see the dads represented in this book, but they have a similar one for mommas here.
