Valentine's Day Book

I say it every year!  Give me a funny Valentine's Day Book over a sentimental one any day, but combine the two and I am in love.  I really appreciate those stories that can weave the charm of the holiday with a sense of humor that means they have never taken themselves too seriously.

Check out my picks from last year here: The Best Valentine's Day Picture Books

Don't forget to Follow One Great Book on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or by Email so that you won't miss any of the Valentine's Day love, combined with just the right amount of giggles.  Isn't humor the best way to a kid's heart?  Well that and chocolate.

Title: Max & Milo: The Mixed -Up Message

Author: Heather & Ethan Long

Target: Preschool - Grade 2

Series: Yes

What this book is about: 
Max likes Molly and wants to write her the perfect note.  However, his little brother Milo thinks Max’s notes are boring and that he needs a grand gesture! When Max quits writing because he feels defeated, leave it to a little brother to piece together a note with just the right amount of sentiment and humor to get the girl.

Why I love this book: 
I am a big supporter of the funny Valentine’s Day books.  These books have enough sentiment to please the fans of love on February 14th, but also enough silliness to make even the most hardened non fan of the day a believer.  This book does that in spades.  While it is not specifically written for Valentine’s Day, it is perfect for the holiday none the less.

The little brother Max is just so much fun and has so much energy in this story that he is an absolute whirling dervish, devising one grand message after another.  Milo makes the perfect foil and together they create just the right note for Molly.

Who this book is for: 
This book is for kids who like silly stories and who like to laugh.  Do you have one of those?

Final thoughts: 
The books are based on the author’s two sons and these parents know funny.
