Valentine's Day by Anne F. Rockwell,Lizzy Rockwell



I usually love Anne Rockwell, but this one disappointed me. The writing is dull and didn't hold my attention or my children's. My kindergartners loved this book. It portrays a multiculturally diverse classroom with grace and warmth. Another "Not your normal Valentines Day book" is "Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink". That one's entertaining and my students loved it but it centers around a trick played by the central character that causes conflict. Plus, my students surreptitiously start reciting "Your feet really stink" behind my back.

I was born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1934 but spent much of my childhood traveling throughout the United States. From the farmlands of northern Mississippi where my grandparents lived, to the magnificent landscape of the American Southwest, I learned to look, the most important skill an artist can develop. I can’t remember when I learned to draw and paint but I never dreamed of becoming anything but an artist. By the time I was 18 I was living on my own in New York City, working and attending art classes at night, and learning from masters in museums. In 1955 I married Harlow Rockwell, an advertising art director and illustrator. When our daughter Hannah was born in 1958, I bought picture books. Sharing the joy of reading with her was one of the greatest pleasures I’ve ever had. I was sure that creating books for children was what I was meant to do.

Rockwell and a pencil or crayon ACTIVITY STEPS: LOOK at the cover of Career Day with your preschooler. Ask him or her to make predictions on what the story will be about based on the pictures. Ask and wait 3-­5 seconds for an answer. Your preschooler can then draw a portrait of himself or herself as an adult with a particular job to include in his or her Portrait Book.

Lizzy Rockwell (Illustrator). This book is an ideal read for St. Patrick's Day, and you could do a lot with it! The kids in the book have created books/plays/etc to tell the history of St. Patrick's Day, so you could do the same in your class to tie this in. It also explains why we celebrate it here in the United States, so it is a good way to tie in the heritage of children in the class. This was a nicely illustrated book all about the history and traditions surrounding St. Patrick's Day, in the context of information gathered and presented for a class project. My story time audience listened politely to this story and it did hold their attention, but it was not as engaging as most of the books that I read.

Great Valentine's story! Not too short, not too long. My 4 year old daughter loves these books.

Okay, teachers, you know most Valentines Day books out there are pretty much all the same. This one is not your normal drivel. The children in this book are making valentines for Michiko, whom we infer has moved to Japan. Ms. Rockwell does not insult our intelligence by telling us this right out at the beginning; the reader picks up on this. The super illustrations, done by Lizzy Rockwell (what a talented family!), ingeniously portray each student's valentine on the left page, and on the facing page, shows the memory of Michiko that prompted the valentine's theme. For example, Pablo makes a fish for a Valentine. The text says,"Will you be mine?" You have to look at the facing page to understand that Pablo made a fish valentine because his memory of Michiko centers around the fun they had at a pet store, looking at the fish tank.
My kindergartners loved this book. It portrays a multiculturally diverse classroom with grace and warmth.
P.S. Another "Not your normal Valentines Day book" is "Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink". That one's entertaining and my students loved it but it centers around a trick played by the central character that causes conflict. Plus, my students surreptitiously start reciting "Your feet really stink" behind my back. Rockwell's book is more in line with the loving aspect of Valentines Day.
