Amelia Bedelia's First Valentine

Herman Parish, Author, Lynne Avril, Illustrator , illus. by Lynne Avril. HarperCollins/Greenwillow $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-06-154458-3

Love is in the air for Amelia Bedelia, in the second story to feature the literal-minded heroine as a child. She gives away her card-playing mother's hand—“Look at all those valentines!”—and fixes valentine cards that confuse her (she puts a bandage across a broken heart on one that reads “Hi Heartbreaker!”). And when she leaves the valentines on the bus, she has to improvise using playing cards. Her ingenuous spirit will continue to capture hearts. Ages 4–8. (Dec.)
