These Love books are tender and caring. They teach kids to recognize and respect feeling and emotions of theirs and of people around them. Today we are sharing our top ten Valentine's books our 3-4 year olds liked to listen to this year.

What is Valentine's Day? What is love? Does my Mom love me to the moon and back? How does that make me feel? What are my friends' feelings and what can I do about it? I just love to read books for the Valentine's Day!
