Book Review: 'A String of Hearts' by Laura Malone Elliott

✰✰✰ Sam has a crush on Tiffany, the most popular girl in class. With Valentine's Day coming up, Sam has a plan to win Tiffany's attention. All he has to do is make the perfect Valentine. With the help of his best friend, Mary Ann, Sam creates a beautiful Valentine. Will Tiffany like it? Sam soon finds out that sometimes it's easy to overlook what you already have.

The Bottom Line: Laura Malone Elliott's sweet, classic story highlights the value of friendship and telling others what they mean to you. Meanwhile, Lynn Munsinger's charming watercolor illustrations bring the story to life. Recommended for kids in grades 1 & 2. Also, recommended for teachers and librarians planning a Valentine themed story hour. The book includes a brief summary of the holiday as well.
