Summary
Minna, an appealing rabbit character, comes up with a great Valentine's Day project which involves enlisting her little brother to do kind things for their neighbors.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "PreS-Gr. 1. Wallace, who has used her bright, deceptively simple paper cuts to bring subjects such as autumn and apples to life, now turns her attention to the ever-popular topic of Valentine's Day. As in past books, the starring characters are young rabbits. In Minna's classroom, the teacher gives a short history of the holiday, and then a party ensues. But the real story begins when Minna and her younger brother make valentines for the neighbors. Their well-intentioned endeavor runs into a few snags, though ultimately everything ends happily. Wallace's bunnies are so adorable they could be discussing how paint dries and they'd still be fun to look at, and the story brings home the pleasures of Valentine's Day, a red-letter day on most kids' calendars. Perhaps most important, the book stresses how sharing the holiday spirit can make everyone happy. --Ilene Cooper Copyright 2004 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Minna and Pip learn all about the history and customs surrounding February 14, and then celebrate with a jolly class party (one of the helpers is their father, who dons a pink shirt and pours pink lemonade for the occasion). But that's not enough for these two rabbits: they want to ensure that no grownup in their neighborhood gets left out on Valentine's Day. Wallace (Leaves! Leaves! Leaves!), capitalizing on the crafty feel of her own three-dimensional, cut-paper collage artwork, incorporates instructions for simple but nifty valentines into a story of how the rabbits manufacture their greetings and deliver them with their red wagon. There's a heart-shaped jigsaw for Mrs. Wunder, a puzzle fan on crutches; a flag featuring a butterfly with hearts for wings for the local ballet teacher; and a tic-tac-toe game with pink and purple hearts (in lieu of Xs and Os) for the bespectacled Mr. and Mrs. Checkers. The writing tends towards the obvious and stilted ("You are filling our home with hearts and love," says Mrs. Checker. "Thank you sweet neighbors!"), and the valentine-making directions bring the narrative to a halt. But crafty youngsters will likely brush these qualms aside and run for the scissors, glue and construction paper. Ages 5-8. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
