This Valentine holiday book for young children will help parents of children ages 2-5 share the meaning of love. The rhyming text and delightful illustrations tell the story of a childs love for his familyand his special love for Jesus.
Lauries first published work was a note passed to a boy in elementary school. You would have thought that this most embarrassing moment would have stopped her writing career. But instead, Laurie is the author of thirty five books and author/illustrator of two more. Laurie lives in rural Ohio with her husband and two daughters and loves writing surrounded by horses, cattle, dogs, cats, and five turkeys.Buket Erdogan was born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey. After studying Turkish textiles, she moved across the ocean to New York to design childrens clothing and illustrate childrens books. She illustrated the Mouses First series published by Simon & Schuster, three of which were New York Times bestsellers. She lives in Brooklyn with "the most inspiring artist," her daughter, Yagmur. Buket paints with bold colors of acrylic with lots of exciting textures of canvas.

Paper Valentines are fine but the real meaning is in Jesus. I bought this as a Valentines gift for my young grandson age 4 & it will be a "keeper".
Debbie Lane5 Stars Out Of 5February 18, 2010Debbie LaneA wonderful book and a great message for preschool children.I used this for children's church and we made valentine's for each child with the verse from the last 2 pages: I give my heart to Jesus and every time I feel it beat I know He's loving me! Then the kids made valentines for Jesus. A whole lesson in one little book.
Kristina5 Stars Out Of 5January 29, 2010KristinaLaurie Lazzaro Knowlton's My Valentine for Jesus is a simple, sweet book ideal for young children who are just getting into Valentine cards. In this board book, a little boy makes paper hearts for those he loves. "I'm saving back one little heart," he says, asking us to wait and see who he'll give it to.First he gives a heart to Mommy, then Daddy and Grammy. Next is big brother, followed by baby. The last two page spread of the book reads: "I give my heart to Jesus. It's kind of small, like me. But every tume I feel it beat, I know he's loving me."What I Like: The last line of the book is what makes this title so special. We're not just learning to show our love for our family and for God, but we're given this wonderful reminder: Every time our heart beats, it's saying "Jesus loves me." Throughout, Bucket Erdogan's illustrations are warm and rich, adding much interest.What I Dislike: Nothing, although some parents may object that the last page show's the boy's drawing of Jesus.Overall Rating: Excellent.Kristina SeleshankoManaging EditorChristian Children's Book Review
