From silly to sentimental, the Brooke Jackman Foundation selects the top 10 books for children with a theme that's fit for Valentine's Day.

"Tailoring a child's reading to the big events that are already occuring in their lives is one of the most effective and fun ways to increase their enthusiasm about literacy," says Erin Jackman, Top 10 Valentine's Day Books: Guess How Much I Love Youdirector of the Brooke Jackman Foundation. "For Valentine's Day, tap into children's eagerness to swap heart-shaped cards with their classmates by introducing them to a book based on the holiday."
