ALTHOUGH VALENTINE’S DAY IS OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH TEENAGERS AND ADULTS BECAUSE OF ITS ROMANTIC THEMES, IT IS JUST AS IMPORTANT A HOLIDAY TO CHILDREN. GRADE SCHOOLS AND JUNIOR HIGHS WILL OFTEN HAVE LITTLE PARTIES TO CELEBRATE FEBRUARY 14 AND ENCOURAGE THEIR STUDENTS TO MAKE CARDS FOR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CLASSMATES AND EVEN FIRST CRUSHES. WITH THIS IN MIND, WE HERE AT OUTLOOK-12 ARE DEDICATING THIS MONTH’S SCHOOL LIBRARY TO VALENTINE-THEMED BOOKS FOR CHILDREN FROM SCHOLASTIC.
“JULIET THE VALENTINE FAIRY” by Daisy Meadows
This Valentine’s Day the love seems to be missing, and if Jack Frost has his way, it may never come back! With the help of his goblins, Jack has stolen the magical objects that make Valentine’s Day so special. Now, sweethearts are sad, and friends and families are fighting instead of showing how much they care for one another! Even Rachel and Kirsty aren’t getting along. When Juliet the Valentine Fairy asks the girls for help, however, they can’t say no. Now, Rachel and Kirsty must find a way to put aside their differences and bring the sparkle back to Valentine’s Day.
