Is It Any Good?

With brightly colored artwork that is recognizably Mary Englebreit, this book looks as inviting as a Valentine Day cookie, the kind that is covered with icing, red hots, and plenty of sprinkles. Hearts of all shapes and sizes fill the pages, each one uniquely ribboned and laced, and Ann Estelle's Valentine box is definitely posh.

Kids, especially those who like cutting, pasting, and making things fancy, will enjoy this book. Though a bit simple, the story is sweet, and the lesson a good one. Ann Estelle learns that getting caught up in the excitement of party preparations is fun, but sharing is what makes the day special.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
