In honor of Valentine’s Day, we are going to share with you books we love. There are A LOT, so we have narrowed it down. We have each chosen a book that we loved reading aloud.
First on the list is a book that should always be on a Valentine’s list. Love Among the Walnuts by Jean Ferris. I was given this book by a librarian in Cambridge, MA. Yeah for librarians! I would bring my 1st grade class to the library every week, and the two librarians quickly became very good friends. Love Among the Walnuts is a silly story about love, family, and the family you find while searching for your true friends. You can’t finish this book without a smile on your face. I read this book to both my son and daughter and they agree. 💕
My daughter’s favorite list is very long. So, I picked one that would be a good choice for Valentine’s Day, The Princess Bride by William Goldman. The rule in our house is that you MUST read the book before seeing the movie, because the book is always better. Unfortunately, we saw the movie before reading the book. While the book is better than the movie, the movie certainly holds it own. The book had us laughing and crying. We enjoyed reading it very much. And, what better book to have for Valentine’s Day then a book about true love?💕
My son’s choice is Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend by Matthew Dicks. While this is not a “love story” he chose this because he loved it, but he also felt that is was a love story between Max and Budo. As Max grows, Budo can love him enough to let him go. My daughter and I both read this book on our own, but I chose to read this aloud to my son. Each night he couldn’t wait to read with me to find out what was happening. This is a book that we all loved and highly recommend.💕
What books do you love? We’d love to hear from you.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Happy Reading!📚💖
