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.
“WRECKING VALENTINE’S DAY! (LEGO CITY: 8X8)”
by Trey King
It’s Valentine’s Day in Lego® City, and love is in their air — well, more like a pink mist that makes people fall in love. A local scientist was mixing chemicals in her lab when her pet cat knocked a beaker filled with purple liquid into the concoction, creating a cloud of pink vapors that starts to escape out the window. It isn’t long before the workers at a nearby construction site are affected by the “love potion” and begin falling in love with each other and even their construction equipment. Fortunately, the site’s foreman was away at the time getting donuts, and soon he and the scientist must team up to save the day.
