Abstract:

Confusion arises as Yoko's classmates secretly trade Valentine's Day cards. There's always a new adventure with Yoko, Timothy, Doris, the Franks and the rest of the gang in Mrs. Jenkins' classroom. With help from each other, their teacher and their families, Yoko and friends explore their similarities, their differences, and their relation to the world in this funny, touching new series just right for young school age children. In the spirit of Frog and Toad and Little Bear, and with simple clear text and brilliant illustrations, these funny, clever, and satisfying stories explore the central issues in elementary school. They deal with making and keeping friends, issues of fairness and justice, finding your voice and unique talents, and navigating the giggles and bumps, hiccups and surprises of the classroom. Love is in the air! Mrs. Jenkins's asks her class to celebrate Valentines Day the nice way -- by making special valentines for everyone. There's plenty of red-hot zingers, Mount Fuji drops, peppermint hearts, and glitter to go around, making this the best Valentine's Day ever.
