Happy Valentine’s Day! This week we celebrate the friends and family that we love – the people who make us feel special and cared for.
Mouse’s First Valentine (Thompson) – Mouse’s sister is making something special – what could it be?
Kitty’s Cuddles (Cabrera) – Kitty learns how many different animals cuddle. Which one is his favorite?
Action Rhyme – I Have A Little Heart
I have a little heart (place hand on heart)
And it goes thump, thump, thump. (Pat chest 3 times)
It keeps right on beating,
When I jump, jump, jump!
I get a special feeling when I look at you (point to child)
It makes me want to give you a hug or two (Hug child or yourself).
Song – I Love You (Barney’s song)
My kids grew up with Barney, and his “I Love You” song has become infamous! There’s no mystery why – the simple song gently affirms affection. This song was always a bedtime favorite at my house.

And on a personal note…
This week is my last week doing storytime at the Allentown Public Library. I’ve accepted a position at another library, where I will be be overseeing the entire Youth Services program. I feel so lucky to have met so many great families here at the Allentown Public Library – I will miss you all!
