Today we participated in stART by reading the story The Day it Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond. You may recognize Felicia Bond from her well known illustrations in the If You Give Mouse a Cookie series. Few people realize that in addition to illustrating for several authors, Felicia Bond has also written a couple of children's books herself.
The story is about a girl that finds it is raining hearts one day and gathers them up to make her Valentine's. You follow her as she creates special Valentine's for each of her friends and then witness each friend receiving their special gift.
However, in the end it stops raining Valentine's and the girl must find a new way to make Valentine's for her friends.
By growing them on a tree!
