Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas!

For the emerging verbal skills/limited attention span 1 year old

Grace loves everything about this book. At 15 months, she is just starting to show an interest in books beyond eating them or just flipping the pages. This book only has 2-5 words per page which is perfect for her developing, yet limited, attention span. Inside the front and back covers are many hearts and the caterpillar is ‘hiding’ among them – it thrills her to find the caterpillar! The book is on the smaller side which makes it easy to bring along in the car and enjoy during outings.

For the dog loving 2+ year old

We love Plummie! She is a loving, kind dog that has a hard time controlling herself – kind of like a toddler! She wants to do the right thing but is surrounded by temptations that make listening a challenge. This is a great book to discuss listening, following directions, and identifying emotions. I often ask, How is Plummie feeling? How do you know? Follow up questions such as When are times that you feel that way? or What could you do to make yourself happy if you are feeling scared like Plummie? help Keener develop emotional intelligence.
