We read this in our kindergarten class for Valentine's Day, and then had a talk about how giving valentines to people who aren't very happy might make them a little less grumpy. There's a bus driver who used to be really mean to our kids, but our teacher has slowly but surely gotten him to turn his act around. (He got a valentine, by the way.)

I give this one a four mainly because of it's cute illustrations of the "Grump." Other than that, it's not a brilliant book, but the idea of the grump, the length, and the repetition might make it good for storytime.

This is a silly story about a grump who just needs a Valentine. The narrative is simple and the repetition is good for beginning readers.
