Get yourself and a little one to a storytime or other activity this week.  I bet you will find some fun Valentine-themed events.  I know, for instance, that the book "Ruby Valentine Saves the Day" and a Valentine's craft will be featured at Barnes and Noble's storytime on Saturday.

The Renaissance Festival starts Saturday!

Have a good week!
