It's only a week until Valentine's Day, and Lily wants to make the perfect heart-shaped valentine for Mommy. But every time she cuts out a heart, it's either too pointy, too round, or too skinny. As the days go by, Lily tries again and again, and when Valentine's Day finally arrives, she has a heart for each day of the week! Which one will be the perfect valentine surprise for Mommy?

Young readers will enjoy this sweet, simple story that introduces the days of the week, as well as the special tradition of creating handmade valentines.

Review:

“The simple text, which teaches shapes and days of the week, is just right for young children, who will recognize their own craft-project frustrations in Lily's experience. The story is sweet without being sappy, and Alley's soft, pencil-and-watercolor illustrations add to the warm tone. This cozy story is an excellent choice for a family-oriented Valentine's Day reading.” ―Booklist

“With its subtle teaching of days and shapes, this is one that teachers will reach for each February. Alley's Lily has a face for all her feelings and actions--hopeful, disappointed, concentrating and working hard. Readers can only hope that the closing illustration hints to a future St. Patrick's Day outing with Lily. Lily's solution is a salute to creativity, ingenuity and thinking outside the box; it will have all parents cheering her efforts and hoping that their own child takes a page from her book.” ―Kirkus Reviews
