Books on Love and Friendship to Give for Valentine’s Day

My husband and I have always given our daughters little gifts for Valentine’s Day. With none of the stress of Christmas, this has become a holiday where we focus on books, chocolate and flowers. What could be better to lift anyone’s spirits in February?

Here are a few of my favorite books that look at love between family members, friends and boyfriends/girlfriends in two different age groups. Where a review is available, you’ll find a live link on the book title.
