Books are one of my favorite ways to count down to a holiday. Christmas, Halloween, and Valentine’s Day too! It’s such a fun way to spend some cozy time with your kids, and celebrate the holiday at the same time. We like to read books before bed, and that’s what we do for our Valentine’s Day Book Countdown! But that’s the “official” reading time—we read these morning, noon, and night!
