About Book

Vicky is happy young lovebird with a great life as the Johnson family pet. When her human Marie starts making Valentine’s Day cards for her first grade class, Vicky is definitely intrigued. 

"Valentine’s Day is very special," Marie explains. "It only comes once a year, and when it comes, you have to tell everyone how much you love them. But most of all, you have to find a special friend to be your Valentine." 

A day about love? That’s fantastic! Now who can be Vicky’s special Valentine? 

A search begins as Vicky asks anyone who will listen to be her Valentine. Unfortunately, the pretty dolly ignores her, and so do the people in the glass box—and she's not sure she can trust the family cat's intentions. 

Will the day come to a close before Vicky can find a Valentine? There’s only one way to find out. Join Vicky in her hunt for love in this special holiday edition of the color-illustrated Bird Brain Books series for children.

My Thoughts

Vicky is a very happy little love bird.  Everyone loves Vicky and she loves everyone and everything.  Her best friend is Marie.  Marie just got home from school and is all excited because tomorrow is Valentines Day and she is going to make cards for all of her friends and one for her teacher.  Vicky got excited right along with Marie.  Maybe Vicky could find a special valentine.  But who would she choose?  How would she get out of the cage so she could find her special valentine?

The author has written an endearing valentine story about finding a special valentine.  Makes you want to jump right into the book ask Vicky to be your special valentine.  I love the illustrations the little love bird's expression looks so pitiful when she became sad.  The colors that were used I think would be called muted but they worked very well with this story.  I keep wanting to say that Vicky is so cute!

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5

Disclosure:  I received a free copy of this book from Evolved Publishing for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  It is my honest opinion.

  1. Thank you for the wonderful review, Liberty Ann. I'm so glad you enjoyed Vicky's story. This one is my illustrator's favorite, too, because she thinks Vicky is the cutest Bird Brain yet!
