Splat is prepped for Valentine’s Day. He has made a card for everyone in his class, but he has made a special one for Kitten. Splat likes Kitten more than “fish sticks and ice cream”, but every time he sees her she pulls his ears and pokes his belly, ties his tail and calls him smelly. Well, it turns out that someone else in Splat’s class is sweet on Kitten, too, and he is ready and willing to prove that he is a better suitor that Splat. True love reigns though when it turns out that Kitten’s made a special card for Splat, too…such a super sweet story that will leave you with a smile on your face.

Mrs. Bear sets her alarm clock so she doesn’t sleep through Valentine’s Day again this year. She digs up the honeypot buried in the snow, sets out a bowl of crunchy dried beetles (Mr. Bear’s favorite) and gets out the Valentine cards she made in the summer. The hardest part is waking up Mr. Bear from his winter slumber. It turns out that Mr. Bear had been preparing for Valentine’s day, too. After sharing a special day together they settle into their den for the rest of the winter.
