♥♥♥ For Your Valentine, the Beginning Reader

I am a huge fan of Toon Books and their commitment to instill children with a love of reading as well as a love of art and design. Too much stuff meant for kids in the bookstore is visually jarring and  just plain ugly. There's no reason why early readers should suffer through garish colors and dumbed-down storylines. They'll have enough visual disappointment in later life…


Thereza Rowe's ♥♥♥ (Hearts) looks like another Toon winner, with bold artwork in  a sophisticated palette. The story features foxes, sharks, chickens and kitty guards… and a quest for a lost heart. Beautiful enough to give to your grown-up Valentine, this book is perfect for beginning readers.
