A Simpler Arthur Book - a review of "Arthur's Valentine" Nov 16, 2006
This Arthur book has less text and a simpler story than some of the others we have read, such as "Arthur's Thanksgiving".
As is suggested by the "card catalog" review, confusion abounds when Arthur receives mystery valentines. In the process of guessing wrong, and having his valentines blown all over the school yard, Arthur is teased for having a girl friend.
Unlike other Arthur books there is no strong moral behind the story, and the characters aren't shown that teasing is wrong. Instead Arthur finds out who his mystery admirer is when he receives a movie ticket. The book ends sweetly (I guess?!) when Arthur goes to the theater, finds out who his admirer is, and leaves after promising a kiss. [He delivers multiple kisses in the form of Hersey's chocolate kisses and a heart card.]
Three Stars. Cute book. Okay artwork. Okay Read-aloud. Not a great deal of concept here, but we are talking about valentines day.
A good Valentine's Day story! Feb 24, 2006
I like all the Arthur books. Marc Brown is an awesome author and illustrator. His books are really funny. They are perfect for kids ages 4 to 10.
Book Review for Arthur's Valentine Mar 10, 2003
I liked the book because i can remember the first valentine that i received from a girl. I was happy like Arthur was, but didn't want everyone to know about it. In the story, Arthur gets a valentine from his secret admirer. He didn't know yet who it exactly was. He gets another one from the same person. The second one says for him to meet her at the movies. If you read this story, you will find out who sent him the valentine.
Teasing should be ignored. Dec 30, 1997
When people tease you about things, it is best to ignore them and keep focused on your goal. I enjoyed this book very much.
