Valentine’s Day, Here I Come!

Grosset & Dunlap. (Here I Come!). Dec. 2022. 32p. pap. $5.99. ISBN 9780593387177.
PreS-Gr 1–This latest title in the “Here I Come!” series is filled with short, rhyming poems celebrating Valentine’s Day at home, at school, and in the community. The characters’ excitement for the day is shown as they get ready for a big party that includes homemade treats and cards with punny sayings. Illustrated with artwork that promotes diversity and inclusion, the poems also offer fun ideas of how to dress, what to eat, and how to express love on this special day of the year. No one is left out—not even special toys or pets!
VERDICT Not for library use; this book includes valentines and stickers for children to use to make greetings of their own for someone special in their lives. Keep a copy for story hours; adults will have fun reading the poems aloud.
