Another great valentine book is The Ballad of Valentine. It follows the rythym of Clementine, but is the story of a man who just can’t seem to get his valentine to his sweetheart. It all works out in the end though, when she comes to visit him.

I just saw this on Pinterest and decided to take a look before pinning. Not one, but two of our favorite Valentine’s Day books (Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch & The Valentine Bears)! Can’t wait to look at the other months! Great list; thanks.
