This Valentine’s Day favorite read-aloud will prompt a number of giggles, in addition to discussions on kindness and forgiveness.
Gilbert is all set to put in writing fifteen friendly valentine cards to his classmates. But how can he write a nice poem for the boy who tweaked his nose, or the lady who made fun of his glasses? As an alternative, Gilbert writes two now not-so-nice valentines…and signs the mistaken name on both!
When his classmates read his poems, their feelings are hurt, and Gilbert’s prank quickly turns into pandemonium. But with the assistance of a friend and an honest apology, there is at all times time for a change of heart on Valentine’s Day.
