I bought this book for two different families with preschool children and they both love it! The story is meaningful, but not too long, with enough repetition to encourage learning. The story itself, encourages loving everyone. While getting a Valentine might be exciting, it's the love around you every day that is really important!
Duck wants to celebrate Valentine’s day, but he doesn’t have a valentine. Hippo, Elephant, Turtle and Pig all have a busy day. Hippo found a valentine invite on his doorstep, Turtle found one on a lily pad, Pig had one under her pizza shop door and Elephant had one in his mailbox. Each of the busy friends took the time to find something nice for their valentine. Each friend needed to be at the park at a specific time. All were excited and all wondered if Duck would be there. Do you think it was Duck as the secret valentine?
