One of my favorite things to do around holidays is look for new holiday related books for my toddler. And that holds true for Valentines Day as well! So far we haven’t collected many Valentines books for toddlers yet. But, I thought I’d share the few we have.
Valentines themed books are such a great themed books to add to your little one’s collection. This holiday is a great time to focus on teaching little ones the concept of love, and what that looks like in different scenarios.
And of course, it’s a great time to remind them how much you love them! Without further ado, let’s jump in and check out the books.

Valentines Books For Toddlers
I have a love-hate relationship with Llama Llama books. Some of them I think are cute, and some of them are a bit silly. For me, Llama Llama I Love You falls somewhere in the middle.
This book is shorter than some of the other Llama Llama books, which makes it well suited for young toddlers or toddlers with short attention spans.
Like the other books in the series, it has a lot of well flowing rhythms, which play a part in teaching toddlers to read. I don’t think it’s the most original of the Valentines books you could buy for toddlers. But, I do think it’s well suited for a quick Valentine read, particularly for young toddlers.
While this book isn’t strictly a “Valentine” book, it does center around the theme of love. Which, in my opinion, makes it a good read for Valentines Day.
I’ll Love You Always centers around a parent mouse telling his (or her? the mouse is blue…so assuming it’s a daddy mouse) little one how much he loves him. And, for how long he will love him. Which of course, is forever.
It’s less rhyme-y than some other books, but the words flow well and make for a great bedtime story to read to your child. It’s personally one of my favorite to read to my two year old.
Again, not strictly a Valentines Day book, but still a great one to read to toddlers on this holiday. Hedgehugs centers around the unique friendship of two hedgehogs. One a boy, and one a girl, this book would be great for both toddler boys and girls.
The premise of the book is about how the two hedgehogs are such great friends. However, despite all their shared interests and wonderful friendship, the two are unable to hug each other.
It goes through the many, many ways that they have attempted. Finally, at the end, the two figure out a solution that is ridiculously adorable–and clever of the author! I won’t spoil it.
Anyway, the book has a friendship type love theme to it in their quest to be able to hug each other. In my opinion, this is a great way to teach little ones about the friendship type of love.
Full disclosure: this is one book we don’t personally own. However, we do love Curious George books! The series focuses on a little monkey named George, who lives with the “Man with the Big Yellow Hat.”
Curious George books are sure to amuse toddlers with the silly antics and adventures of the little monkey. And the books typically teach some sort of valuable lesson within the story. So while we haven’t read this particular one, I would recommend any Curious George book to you if you have a toddler.
