Five Ways to Love On Your Grandkids This Valentine’s Day

Posted on: February 6th, 2012 by Kay Swatkowski

The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it.

Idea #2 – Give your grandchild a new book for Valentine’s Day.  Add a note inside to affirm and bless them.

Would you like to give your grandchildren a gift that lasts this Valentine’s Day?  How about a book?  You can find one that suits the holiday or you can give your grandchild any worthy piece of children’s literature.

My Valentine For Jesus by Laurie Lazarro is a good choice for little children. I found this great little Valentine’s book and read it to our two youngest grandchildren last week.  It is a board book and very sweetly teaches preschoolers that loving Jesus is very important.

Just In Case You Ever Wonder by Max Lucado is a great choice for ages three and up. Because I Love You is another good choice from Max Lucado.  The artwork is beautiful and inspiring.

Here are a few more favorites that have nothing to do with Valentine’s Day but are fun:

  • A Sick Day for Amos McGee, Phillip Stead
  • Goggles, Ezra Jack Keats
  • Too-Loose The Chocolate Moose – Stewart Moskowitz
  • Mother Goose
  • The Day Jimmy’s Boa Ate the Wash, Trinka Noble
  • Blueberry’s for Sal, Robert McCloskey

Check out our read aloud section from time to time. We will be adding age-appropriate reading lists in the near future.

Someone has said that children’s literature is an important tool in spiritual and character formation.  My grandmother gave my sisters and I each a new book for every holiday and birthday.  I believe her gift of books had a very positive impact on my development. I especially loved the notes she would put on the title page.  Give a gift of a good book to your grandchild this Valentine’s Day.  They will read it again and again and each time remember your love and care.
