Children's Book Review: Panda's Valentine's Day
Panda's Valentine's Day

For Panda, Valentine's Day means making the best card ever for his Mama-one that's pretty and fun and with lots of love inside, just like her. But nothing he does works out quite right: the heart's uneven, the red ribbon tears, and the beads won't glue. Then Mama shows him: it's the love you share that really makes a card-and Valentine's Day-special.
* Panda and Mama always exchange Valentine's cards, but he can't seem to make the perfect valentine. He ends up throwing out his work, minus the words for the inside. When he goes out to play he doesn't realize that he's made a valentine. Paired with his words of love (which I loved!) Mama shows him how he unexpectedly has the perfect valentine for her. Overall, a cute, sweet, Valentine's Day story.
