It is Valentine’s Day and Jasper does not have a gift for his lovely wife, Lily. He visits his friends in hopes of finding the perfect gift. Each of his friends has prepared a gift that is unique to their significant other. His frog friend Miriam prepared chocolate-covered flies for her husband. While Teagon wanted to prepare a rabbit stew for his vixen, which required an actual rabbit. Will Jasper make it home safely to his Valentine with a special gift? Or will he become an ingredient in fox’s Valentine’s day gift?
Snowy Valentine by David Petersen is a delightful story with beautiful illustrations. It is a great read-a-loud for Valentine’s Day. For grades kindergarten and up.
