Our thoughts


We liked it! I love the adorable illustrations and thought the book had a sweet story that helps kids realize how much little acts of kindness can make a big impact on the lives of others. My 2 year old, 6 year old, and 9 year old all liked it; it was most age appropriate for the 6 year old, who is at a preschool level academically. He asked to read it several times in a row ad enjoyed finding the valentines on each page where Mirabel dropped them. There was definitely nothing objectionable in it for any age group. My 2 year old loved the pictures and my 9 year old liked the story, but thought it was definitely a PK-2nd grade book.

If you are looking for a Valentine's Day themed book for kids, I think Mirabel's Missing Valentines is a great one. I would recommend it especially for 3-6 year olds.
