PreS-Gr 1–This beginning reader serves as a funny, friendly introduction to the concept of Valentine’s Day for young readers who, like Stitch, struggle to understand its meaning. Lilo tries to explain the holiday to Stitch, showing him how to make Valentine’s Day cards and then handing them out to her friends around town. Stitch catches on and then races off to find his Valentine, fellow alien Angel. Stitch tries various traditional gifts for Angel, such as flowers and songs, until finally landing on a gesture she understands. The familiar palette and illustration style of the beloved film will draw young readers to this story, which uses level appropriate text in short sentences and simple, repetitive words.
VERDICT Recommended for collections where beginning readers and Disney books are in demand.
