My musings on reading and writing

Valentine book themes

I always love seeing photos of my niece’s children on Facebook but this one in particular IMG_5863captured my heart..

There’s my Abby wearing the crown celebrating 100 days of school.

Behind her is the bulletin board shouting out “We Love to Read.”

And below, on a shelf, are a selection of books very appropriate for the month of February…books about love and Valentine’s Day.

There’s Fancy Nancy’s Heart to Heart by Jane O’Connor and Chocolatina by Erik Kraft. (Who doesn’t want a heart-shaped box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day? Or, as in Eve Bunting’s book The Valentine Bears, chocolate covered ants.)

Protagonists in the books are mice and bears and even a Love Monster.

Abby loves school and loves to read. Her happy face reminds me how as a children’s book author I can go back and be a child again. Make-believe. Create wonderful characters for children of all ages. Remember stories from when I was a child. Read wonderful stories that make me laugh or make me cry.

And once again, I am reminded, if you like to read, you are never without a friend; you never stop learning.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.
