Yappy Valentine’s Day!

WorthyKids. Nov. 2023. 20p. Board $7.99. ISBN 9781546005360.
Toddler-PreS–This sentimental Valentine’s Day board book is told from the point of view of the dog to his beloved “hooman.” Photographs of adorable dogs in various coo-inducing poses—wearing hats, holding roses in their mouths, covered in mud and smiling, and cuddling—are juxtaposed with illustrations of happy kids playing with dogs. The sparse, straightforward text reads like a greeting card, speckled with dog-friendly puns such as “‘Chews’ me for your Valentine.” Dog-loving little ones and their grown-ups will appreciate the simplicity of this book, which would make a great gift for Valentine’s Day.
VERDICT Recommended as an additional purchase where holiday books are in demand.
