Well many people around the world will be celebrating Valentine's Day this Thursday by giving cards and gifts to family and loved ones. It is estimated that 190 million Valentines are sent each year in America! Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine's_Day  to learn some more fun facts and history about Valentine's Day.
This Valentine's Day give a friend a good book recommendation. I absolutely loved, loved, loved
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo. I loved the language the author used in this book and the way she develops the characters. I never knew I could ever become so attached to a china rabbit...read it and you will understand! I was super excited to see a student borrow this fabulous book last week and can't wait to hear what she thinks.

What book have you fallen in love with and why?
