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.
“VALENTINE’S DAY DOGNAPPING
(SCOOBY-DOO READERS, BOOK #10)” by Gail Herman
Scooby Doo is back for another adventure. A new pizza place just opened in town, but when Mystery Inc. orders some pies, they come out heart shaped instead of round. They soon realize the restaurant is making special pizzas for Valentine’s Day, but Scooby doesn’t like “Rovey-dovey” mushy stuff. All of that changes, however, when he sees a dainty little dog named Prissy and falls head over heels (or paws) in love. Unfortunately, as soon as they meet, Prissy is dognapped by a mysterious figure. Who was that person? Why would they dognap Prissy? It’s up to Scooby and his friends to solve the mystery and rescue his canine crush.
