I’ve talked a lot this month about love. I’ve shared with you some non-sappy romantic passages, some female book characters who would make great BFFs, book characters who enjoy living the single life, and I made some fun printable literary valentines (we’ve even learned how to make a Valentine’s Day book banner and a book page heart wreath).
That’s a lot of love for just one month!
Valentine’s Day is this weekend, so there is just one more day to share something romantic! I thought it would be fun to talk today about the biggest loves of many people’s lives- their pets!
Pets can make the best of valentines because they will never stop loving you no matter how grumpy you are.
Book characters love their pets, too. Today, I am sharing with you some of the best bookish quotes about animals.
