My apologies dear friends. I had plans for a Valentine’s book list and was working on it all week; but to be honest, my heart just wasn’t in it. (No pun intended, but it seems it was unavoidable.) I have a few books that I love and will gladly highlight after storytime this weekend; but I’ve been sick all week and had several other weekly commitments that just sucked up all the post-worthy time. Please forgive my lapse.
I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day. I’ll be back soon with some more fun reviews!

It’s going to be a loud storytime tomorrow with another double feature.
