All Rise...

Judge David Johnson hasn't gotten a valentine in 30 years.

The Charge

Featuring "One Zillion Valentines" and…

The Case

…not really any other stories about valentines.

But, whatever, if you have a little kid that isn't addicted to The Fresh Beat Band (like my daughter) and enjoys the lower-key, pan-and-scan old school charm of these Scholastic read-alongs, he or she won't care.

"One Zillion Valentines"
Written and illustrated by Frank Modell
Two boys without girlfriends fight their debilitating loneliness by sending valentines to everyone.

"A Letter to Amy"
Written and illustrated by Ezra Jack Keats
A young boy mails a letter to his friend. The end.

Written and illustrated by Ezra Jack Keats
Now we're really drifting away from the valentines theme. Two kids team up with a dog to fight off bullies that want to steal a pair of goggles.

"Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge"
By Mem Fox
A young boy tells stories to an old lady and everyone's day is made.

"Will I Have a Friend?"
By Miriam Cohen
(shakes magic 8-ball) All signs point to no.

The Valentine's Collection in standard definition full frame, with Dolby 2.0 stereo, and a read-along option.

The Verdict

Not Guilty.
