Hello, my friend! It’s Bibi from BookSpring, sharing my love of reading with you. Why do I love reading? It helps me feel good. It teaches me things I don’t know. I love it so much when people read aloud to me. There are so many reasons to love to read! What do you love about reading?
Watch this video, download books to read together, and explore things to do with BookSpring.

Things to Do Together
Talk: Talk about love! What are some things you love to do? Who are some people in your life that you love? Why do you love them?
Write: Make Valentine’s Day name puzzle. Draw a large heart on a piece of paper and then cut it out. Write your name on the heart in large letters and then draw a few squiggly lines to cut to do your puzzle. Full instructions here:
Move: Put on your favorite songs about love and togetherness and DANCE! Some great suggestions are “Happy” by Pharrel or “Count on Me” by Bruno Mars.
Create: Make Valentine’s day meal or food! Think of red and/or pink foods, and then think if you could create a menu of just those foods. If you have red food coloring, you can also turn all sorts of colors pink and red.
At the end of the week, reflect on what you read and what you did.
- Who are some people in my life that I love?
- What are ways I can show them I love them?
- What was my favorite book we read together?
