Valentine's Books for Kids Giveaway

Valentine's day is soon approaching, but what do you want to teach your children? If you are looking to balance the commercialism of Valentine's Day, then check out these titles from Author Stacy McAnulty and Illustrator Joanne Lew-Vriethoff.


Critically acclaimed children’s author Stacy McAnulty follows up her Brave and Beautiful titles with:

Love, continuing to share a message of diversity, inclusivity, and compassion that is more needed now than ever.



Illustrated with a diverse cast of characters, McAnulty’s uplifting story shows that love can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. The contrast between the text and Joanne Lew-Vriethoff’s colorful art turns stereotypes on their heads as “Love calls for bouquets of flowers” accompanies an image of a young boy giving a hand-picked bundle to his sick grandfather, and “designer greeting cards” shows a little boy painstakingly drawing a card by hand. All kinds of love are celebrated within these pages, and all are treated equally: a family with two moms, a military mom overseas, a child learning sign language to communicate with their friend, adopted siblings, new babies, beloved pets, and all faiths and ethnicities.
“Perfect for balancing the commercialism of Valentine’s Day” (Kirkus starred review), Love will bring a smile to readers of all ages as they are reminded that “nothing else matters without love.”

Brave: An empowering picture book for all kids that demonstrates to children that they can be real-life superheroes and that all kids have what it takes to be brave. Superheroes seek adventure, never give up, and stay calm when others are afraid. Superheroes are brave. But they aren't the only ones. Kids are brave every day. When they are told they are too little, but accomplish something big. When they check for monsters under the bed, just in case. When they face something uncertain, whether a thunderstorm or a hospital visit. When they stand up for what's right, even when it means facing consequences. Like superheroes, brave kids can save the world, just by being brave.
Thoughtful text from Stacy McAnulty paired with vibrant illustrations from Joanne Lew-Vriethoff encourage kids to be brave in all the ways they can: trying new things, speaking their mind, confronting bullies, and more. This book will inspire kids to follow their hearts and to have courage, no matter the situation.

Beautiful: Every girl is unique, talented, and lovable. . . .Every girl is BEAUTIFUL. Much more than how one looks on the outside, true beauty is found in conquering challenges, showing kindness, and spreading contagious laughter. Beautiful girls are empowered and smart and strong! BEAUTIFUL breaks barriers by showing girls free to be themselves: splashing in mud, conducting science experiments, and reading books under a flashlight with friends. This book will encourage all girls to embrace who they are and realize their endless potential.
