Emlyn Chand Review – Vicky Finds A Valentine

Vicky Finds a Valentine


Emlyn Chand does it again! 

Vicky is a happy young lovebird with a great life as the Johnson family pet. When her human Marie starts making Valentine’s Day cards for her first grade class, Vicky is definitely intrigued. “Valentine’s Day is very special,” Marie explains. “It only comes once a year, and when it comes, you have to tell everyone how much you love them. But most of all, you have to find a special friend to be your Valentine.” A day about love? That’s fantastic! Now who can be Vicky’s special Valentine? A search begins as Vicky asks anyone who will listen to be her Valentine. Unfortunately, the pretty dolly ignores her, and so do the people in the glass box—and she’s not sure she can trust the family cat’s intentions. Will the day come to a close before Vicky can find a Valentine? There’s only one way to find out. Join Vicky in her hunt for love in this special holiday edition of the color-illustrated Bird Brain Books series for children.

Vicky Finds A Valentine is another great book from the Bird Brain Series.  Vicky is a sweet little lovebird who I challenge you not to like. 

Although this review is after Valentine’s Day I would still encourage you to consider adding it to your library.  Emlyn is an amazing author and her books never disappoint.

The story is written with 3-6 year olds in mind. 

I typically do these reviews with our 10 year old son and this book was no exception.  When asked what he thought of the book he said it was good for the little kids.  The funny thing is he has picked it up several times to read to them again at his own choosing.  : )  I’d say he enjoys it as well!
