Manzano's lyrical prose combined with stunning photography of people from dozens of countries around the world explores how all of our lives are enriched by our geographic and cultural diversity.

  1. We bake Valentine's treats and do fun Valentine's projects.

  2. We make Valentine’s cookies and send cards to friends and family.
    Sarah Bradley

  3. We make all the foods of the day heart shaped and write little notes for each other.

  4. For Valentine's Day, we usually have a whole day set aside to do special activities. We usually start the day with doughnuts at the local doughnut shop; then we make sure we are dressed up in our special Valentine's Day shirts and we go around different stores, to neighbors, and other areas and the boys hand out roses that they purchase themselves to strangers and friends. After we get home, we usually try to make collage hearts if we have enough magazine cuttings to decorate them. I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do about this year since they haven't been able to save up for flowers and with all the rules in place, but we hope to be able to pass out some flowers still (even if not as many as usual).

  5. I bought a surprise toy and chocolate for each of my kids for Valentine's Day. I usually don't do much, but I wanted to make it cheerful this year. -Kelly D

  6. We make DIY valentine's! :)


  7. I love making a big deal about it. We have a craft day where we make cards together for daddy and for her class. I make a card for her. Then on Valentine's I make a special hearth-themed dinner that has all red, white and pink foods shaped like hearts and as a family we watch a sweet movie like Peanuts Valentine special.

  8. I like to get them gifts, they wake up to beautiful gift baskets with arts and crafts for us to do during the day!

  9. I like to make Valentines cookies with my kids.

  10. I like to give chocolates to them or we make some brownies together

  11. A lot of arts and crafts and thoughtful creative note cards.
