In February, we always have a few books about love on our bookshelf, and we enjoy reading them together on the days leading up to Valentine’s Day.

Over the years, preparing some new books and a few Valentine’s Day activities for the kids at the beginning of February has turned into such a lovely family tradition!

If you are looking for some wonderful picture books about love to read with your little ones this month, I gathered here a list of our favorite ones.

These heartwarming stories are perfect for teaching children about love and kindness. Plus, they can spark some great conversations that will bring you closer to your kids.
