Ever since my parents gave me The Day It Rained Hearts nearly thirty years ago, I’ve had a soft spot for the simple holiday tale. It’s a sweet story of a girl who crafts a quartet of valentines from a most unusual weather event, and my copy has traveled with me through childhood, college, and beyond. After my daughter was born, I was thrilled to discover the picture book was still in print. Now five-year-old Evie and I read her copy of the story together while she ponders the perfect valentines to make for her own pals.
