Title: Vicky Finds a Valentine
Series: A Bird Brain Book
Author: Emlyn Chand
Publisher: Evolved Publishing
Description: Vicky is happy young lovebird with a great life as the Johnson family pet. When her human Marie starts making Valentine’s Day cards for her first grade class, Vicky is definitely intrigued.

“Valentine’s Day is very special,” Marie explains. “It only comes once a year, and when it comes, you have to tell everyone how much you love them. But most of all, you have to find a special friend to be your Valentine.”

A day about love? That’s fantastic! Now who can be Vicky’s special Valentine?

A search begins as Vicky asks anyone who will listen to be her Valentine. Unfortunately, the pretty dolly ignores her, and so do the people in the glass box—and she’s not sure she can trust the family cat’s intentions. Will the day come to a close before Vicky can find a Valentine?

There’s only one way to find out: join Vicky in her hunt for love in this special holiday edition of the color-illustrated Bird Brain Books.

Review: Another cute story by Emlyn Chand. This time the book is about a Love bird named Vicky. She is a pet bird who absolutely loves her life. She actually feels sorry for the birds she sees outside her window because they don't have the loving family that she has in her home. She loves everything about her day, especially when her best friend Marie comes home from school. Marie always tells Vicky about her day and treats her like she's a well loved pet.

Well one day Marie comes home from school and tells Vicky about Valentine's Day while making valentines for her entire class. You remember those days right? Marie tells her how on Valentine's Day you give valentines to everyone you care about and you find a special person to be your valentine. The next day, Vicky goes in search of her special valentine. She tries talking to a doll (who obviously doesn't respond). She talks to the people on the t.v. (who obviously rudely ignore her). Finally she thinks that she has found her valentine in the house cat, but of course the cat nearly eats Vicky while she isn't looking. Marie saves her just in time. Disappointed, but glad to see Marie, Vicky listens like a good friend to Marie as she talks about her day. Marie then gives Vicky the one thing she was searching for, a special valentine because they are each other's special valentine friends. It's a cute children's story with wonderful artwork. I am a big fan of all the Bird Brain Books. I think these are great stories for children of all ages.
