All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Lighthearted but awkwardly rhymed text and splashy digital illustrations depict ten friends making cards for each other and setting up a Valentine's Day party (but whose house are they decorating?). The counting aspect is hard to follow since there are often more (or fewer) cards per spread than the text indicates.

Fourth in Davick and the late Schulman's holiday-themed series of counting books, this outing focuses on 10 children's Valentine's Day preparations. In each scene, a child creates a personalized valentine for one of his or her friends: "Tom likes to pretend to be a gorilla. Guess what he gets from his neighbor Priscilla./ Annie Lee knows how Pete likes bugs./ He'll really dig her squishy slugs!" The valentines are collected on the right side of each spread, while the kids busy themselves making cards, decorating a house with streamers and balloons, and enjoying party food. The bright, eye-catching spreads offer ample details for readers to explore, and the upbeat rhymes (and the emphasis on tailor-made gifts) should help get them in the mood for some craft projects of their own. Ages 3–8. (Dec.)

PreS-Gr 1—During a neighborhood party, 10 children work diligently to make just the right valentine cards for one another. Aloysius has "sweet-tooth wishes," so he gives Alexandra chocolate kisses, while Priscilla gives Tom a gorilla card in honor of his favorite animal. From the outset, the rhyme scheme jolts along, forcing rhymes like, "A dinosaur card, thinks little Pete,/my pal Max would find real neat." The digital artwork is a sugar overload with pinks, reds, and purples dominating the palette. There is a lack of depth, leaving the activities on each spread hard to distinguish from the background. The children resemble bobblehead dolls complete with manic grins and static limbs. The moral of giving thoughtful handmade valentines to friends is made woefully trite, as neither the rhyme scheme nor the artwork has any real sweetness.—Jenna Boles, Washington-Centerville Public Library, OH
