Looking for Valentine’s day books for toddlers? Not only are books a great way to introduce your child to the holiday, but they also make perfect Valentine’s day gifts for toddlers.
As a fan of all things holiday, I love switching out seasonal books for my kids. This breaks up the monotony of reading the same titles a thousand times and it keeps our book collection feeling fresh and new as we rotate.
While Valentine’s day isn’t necessarily a huge holiday, I like the excuse to swap books so I am always looking for new ones to add to our shelf. As a consequence, we read all of the holiday books we can find and pick the best ones.
So get your toddler into the Valentine spirit with these great books!

Another book for dino lovers, this story of Tiny making a valentine for this friend is very sweet. A simple story makes this great for even young toddlers. We also love Tiny T. Rex And The Impossible Hug, which would be a great non-Valentine specific option too.

This is a super silly book about a boy asking his mother outlandish “what if” questions and she gives equally creative answers about how she would still love him. It’s cute and fun and my kids love it. A bit wordy for really little ones, this story of unconditional love is best for older toddlers.
