The Valentine Bears - Eve Bunting This is a lovely little story about two hibernating bears that wake up early in order to celebrate Valentine's Day together. This is a very sweet book, where they each give the other things they truly appreciate while celebrating together for the first time. What is interesting about this is the idea that they make the time to do despite their natural inclinations. This makes it at once sweet and shows how important Valentine's Day should be to couples.

The illustrations are done by Jan Brett, whose work is well known within Children's Literature. They are detailed, beautiful, and very sweet.

All in all, a great book that one will want to read beyond the holiday in February.
