3.5 STARS It's one of the better Little Blue Truck sequels -- the variety of valentines is nice and many children will be drawn to the pretty designs (including foil accents). ...more

My grandsons love the Little Blue Truck books and I love to give them to them! All the parts that make a great book for preschool aged kids are there—rhythm, rhyme, brightly colored illustrations, familiar animals and settings, and in this particular episode, a sweet lesson on giving and thoughtfulness. I look forward to the next Little Blue Truck story.

I really hope this book honors the relationship between blue and toad that is obvious.

I received an electronic ARC from HMH Books for Young Readers through Edelweiss+.
Little Blue Truck delivers valentines to friends and hopes to get some in return. Sadly, no one gives Blue a card along the way. A huge surprise waits at home - all his friends have gathered to wish him Happy Valentines Day.
Toddlers and Preschoolers love Little Blue Truck, and this story will delight them as well. The illustrations show the energy and love surrounding the characters.

We are big fans of Little Blue Truck here! My nephews request these books often and then love looking on the back and asking for the other books pictured! If we read one, we have to read them all! I’m so glad they love Little Blue because I do, too! This new offering is no different. I was saddened to learn the original illustrator had passed. But the new “ghost illustrator” (is that the proper term?) is fantastic. This Valentine’s book has the same easy rhyming we’ve come to expect and the illu ...more

Little Blue Truck books are a big hit where I teach! This book shows Little Blue giving out Valentin's Day Cards to all of his friends all while Little Blue is secretly hoping for a card for himself. When Blue thinks no one left him a card, it shows kids how others feel when they get left out. It also shows kids how doing nice things like giving Valentine's Day cards makes everyone happy. ...more

I received this ARC from the publisher through Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review.

This is a sweet addition to the Little Blue Truck. The rhyme scheme of these books can best be described as rollicking, and this one doesn't disappoint. Little Blue Truck is off to deliver his Valentine's Day cards, and hoping he'll receive a few in return along the way.

Definitely our favorite of the Little Blue truck holiday-themed books. We had a fun time talking about how each valentine was specially made for each of Little Blue's friends, and about how fun it is to give thoughtfully. ...more

Cute! Wish there was a little more repetition to help make it more interactive for a toddler, but I like the story.

The rhymes in this book aren't obnoxious like in so many other books of this genre. And the animals and lift-the-flap make this a bedtime favorite in my house. ...more

I'll be honest... I am obsessed with this book. It is perfect for little ones learning their animal sounds. The ending is just perfect. It is my favourite book in the LBT series! ...more

Perfect for Little Blue Truck fans and it features textured Valentines!
Note: I accessed a digital review copy of this book through Edelweiss.
Colored foil accents and a fold-out page at the end; usual light holiday fare, about the same as a Valentine's Day card. ...more

Not as good as the other LBT books; this one doesn’t teach a lesson. But it does have animal sounds and rhyming, which is better than some books.

Another Little Blue Truck 🛻

This is just in line with ALL THE LITTLE BLUE TRUCK BOOKS. Don’t get it on Kindle, unless you by it in hardback book it deserves to be held while you read it. It’s another CLASSIC from LITTLE BLUE TRUCK 🛻 💙🙏🏼
