Thank you to #blueslipmedia and #twolionspublising for the free review copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Once the December holidays are over and the new year begins, the most often asked question in an elementary library is “Where are the Valentine’s books?” and then the next one is “Are all of the Valentine’s books checked out?” I hated to see those disappointed faces, so I was always searching for new Valentine picture books with great stories and colorful illustrations to add to the collection. Duck and Hippo: The Secret Valentine fills that need perfectly!

This is the latest addition to the delightful Duck and Hippo series. The heartwarming story is about friendship, thoughtfulness and kindness, as well as a little bit of mystery which makes it even more of a joy to share with your little ones. I loved the cheery illustrations and the expressive faces on all of Duck and Hippo’s friends as they put on their best clothes, packaged up their most thoughtful gifts and set out to discover the answer to the mysterious Valentines each had received.

This book is available now and would make a perfect surprise for your family on Valentine’s Day!
