About the Book

Valentines come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Some are homemadeand some are store-bought. Some are funny and some are not. Sam wants to give just the right valentine to the most popular girl in the class, Tiffany. But what kind is the right kind? Mary Ann helps Sam figure out how to make all sorts of valentines. But will Tiffany even notice Sam if he gives her a special valentine?

Laura Malone Elliott and Lynn Munsinger’s charming story shows how the best friends are often the ones you may not know you have—until Valentine’s Day!—and even a simple string of hearts can show a friend how special he is.

Critical Praise

“The delightful title sets the tone for this sweet story of friendship. A lovely Valentine story about the real meaning of friendship.” — School Library Journal

“Munsinger and Elliott sensitively convey classroom popularity dynamics and Valentine’s Day butterflies; the moment when Sam realizes that it’s Mary Ann he really likes should touch even Valentine’s Day grouches.” — Publishers Weekly
