Last month I posted about a couple of books that convey love to a child. Valentine’s Day is coming this week and I realized I hadn’t posted any additional titles. Therefore, I’m posting two more today. (While I’d like to post more, we’ve had some drama relating to a new router that we installed that’s been misbehaving. During the router trouble, my keyboard tray broke off from my desk. Hence, I can’t sit at my desk to work on the computer for long periods of time since it’s just not comfortable. My new keyboard tray cannot arrive fast enough.) But I digress…
First, Mommy Hugs by Karen Katz is a giant board book I’ve enjoyed reading with my daughter for months now. This book accounts for ten different times of day that moms and babies can exchange hugs with each other. My daughter loves to read this book with me while snuggled on my lap. (NOTE: Katz has a book especially for Valentine’s Day, Where Is Baby’s Valentine? A Lift-the-Flap Book, too. I haven’t personally seen it, but as someone whose kid loves Katz’s books, I’m figuring it’s another good pick!)
Second, Betsy Snyder’s I Haiku You contains 20 haiku poems that focus around childhood friendship and things kids love. It’s adorably illustrated and can serve as an inspiration for kids to craft their own Haiku poems. Betsy wrote a guest blog post over at my other blog, Two Writing Teachers, last week. She talked about how I Haiku You went from an idea to a project to a book. Click here to read what she wrote and for a chance to win a copy of her book.

Yes, Where is Baby’s Valentine? is a fun book for toddlers! Thanks for the I Haiku You recommendation. I’m looking forward to reading it.
