The Valentine Express
By Nancy Elizabeth Wallace
Marshall Cavendish
32 pages

It’s Valentine’s Day at bunny school. Minna and Pip learn all about the holiday. They drink punch and eat cookies. They exchange valentines with their friends. They do all the things bunnies do on Valentine’s Day. On their way home after the party, they meet up with their neighbor, Mrs. Wunder. Suddenly they realize not everyone gets valentines. Minna and Pip come up with a plan to spread valentine cheer all over the neighborhood. Wallace’s detailed, cut-paper collage illustrations create a three dimensional, felt board appeal. You want to reach out and touch the brilliant pictures. Little crafters can learn five easy crafts if they pay close attention. The Valentine Express is a holiday book, a craft book, and a heart-warming story about random acts of kindness.
