The Boardman library hosted a Valentine’s Day story time for toddlers and preschoolers Feb. 12 and 13. The story times, both led by librarian Katherina Matasic, offered songs, rhymes, books, and a Valentine’s Day themed craft.

The story times began with “I’ll Make a Valentine” to the tune of London Bridge. Other songs were “I’m A Little Valentine” to the tune of “I’m A Little Teapot,” “H-E-A-R-T” to the tune of “Bingo,” and “All the Time” to the tune of “Oh, My Darling Clementine.”

Matasic also read several Valentine’s Day-themed books. The favorite among children at the story times was “Love Splat” by Rob Scotton, a book about a cat that gets into all sorts of trouble when he finds out that he is in competition with another cat in his class for the affections of the same kitten. The Splat character has a series of stories detailing some of his adventures and many of the children were familiar with the story line.

Other books were “Little Mouse’s Big Valentine” by Thatcher Hurd, “Bee Mine” by Olive Ewe, and “Silly Tilly’s Valentine” by Lillian Hoban.

Children also did several activities and a craft. The main activity was a rhyme that used hand movements to encourage body recognition called “My Valentine Heart.” The preschool-aged children colored and decorated valentines to give to family members. Toddlers glued a poem to the front of a card to give to their loved ones on Valentine’s Day.
