If you're looking for the perfect Valentine's Day gift for your sweetheart, we've got you covered. Combine any one of our love-ly books with a Lucy & Leo's cupcake; it's a match made in heaven! Not sure a book's the right way to go? Let us convince you: A book is never a bad idea.
Frances and Bernard: Inspired by the lives of Robert Lowell and Flannery O'Connor, this new novel explores friendship and love, faith and sanity. It's one of our new favorites at The Bookshelf, and we think you'll love it too.
Pride and Prejudice: This classic love story gets a newly designed covered that pairs perfectly with this heart-themed holiday. (Plus, who doesn't have a crush on Mr. Darcy?)
Love Sonnets: Shakespeare's sonnets have never looked so good.
You Are My Cupcake: This colorful little board book would make the perfect gift for your little one this Valentine's Day, though the illustrations are fun for grown-ups too!

We're big proponents of reading to our kids, and historical celebrations give us all lots of opportunities to educate our children through the art of storytelling. This week, we've made a list of our favorite stories to read to your children during Black History Month. We think these are the perfect books to share history with young kids, and we'll be featuring some of these titles during our story times in Midtown.
Children's author Emilie Buchwald once said, "Children are made readers on the laps of their parents." We couldn't agree more.
