Sweet hearts by Jan Carr

A young girl celebrates Valentine's Day by making and hiding paper hearts around the house for her family to discover. Includes directions for making hearts and a brief history of Valentine's Day.


I have a little heart, (place hand over heart)
And it goes thump, thump, thump (pat chest three times)
It keeps right on beating,
When I jump, jump, jump (jump three times)
I get a special feeling, when I look at you. (point to child)
It makes me want to give you a hug or two. (hug yourself)
