Review

It is clear that Willie really had her HEART into the creation of this invaluable classroom resource. This gifted and talented author has provided her readers with a plethora of fun and innovative games, crafts, and treats to give any Valentine sweet memories to treasure. --Monica Lobser, M.A.Ed., Co-author, OOPS divergent thinking books, Colorado

With Valentine s Day right around the corner, teachers and room parents across the city are racking their brains, trying to come up with some new and exciting ideas for school Valentine's parties. An answer to this yearly dilemma arrives in the form of Wilhelminia Ripple s new book, Valentine School Parties...What Do I Do?® She takes all the guesswork out of planning a spectacular Valentine s Day party sure to leave the kids wanting more. My favorite chapter, as with her Halloween School Parties book, is Ripple s advice on room parenting. You just know that she has already 'been there, done that' with every bit of advice she offers. The helpful hints from other parents and teachers, plus the convenient forms to copy and send home notes and keep track of successes and failures, make this book an indispensable classroom reference. --Sharon Galligar Chance, TIMES RECORD NEWS, Wichita Falls, Texas, January 1999

Whether you re a teacher or a room helper planning a school party, or a parent throwing a party at home, you can always use help putting together an upbeat celebration that will keep children s attention. Wilhelminia Ripple, a mother of three, has put ten years into gathering and creating Valentine ideas. Her book Valentine School Parties...What Do I Do?® offers parents and teachers entertaining alternatives to boring paper cutout activities. Valentine Laced Candy Hearts, Cupid Stationery, and Candy Roses let kids bring home creations to be proud of. (Parents and children can also put together the crafts at home to pass out as Valentines.) For party-time fun, kids will enjoy delving into Ice Cream in a Bag or Caterpillar Gum. The games are child-tested and listed by age appropriateness. The last chapter, 'Valentine Boxes,' celebrates children s own creations. The book includes party-planning forms and information about becoming a room parent and funding school parties. --Jacqueline Etcheverry, L.A. PARENT, Burbank, California, and SAN DIEGO PARENT, San Diego, California, February 1999

This is a wonderful reference for classroom-size groups. It is filled with games, snacks, crafts and activities for all elementary ages. Other members of our PTO also used it and we liked it so much that we bought multiple sets as references for our Party Parents.

I run an after-school program for a non-profit organization with children that range in age from 6 to 14. It's very difficult to plan holiday events that will interest all the kids, but I got some great ideas from this book! It covers everything from games, to crafts and special treats. While most of the activities are geared towards the younger crowd, I was able to extract some ideas for the older kids as well. A very well organized and creative book!

This book was great for helping plan my son's kindergarten valentine party. The snack ideas were super and pretty easy to assemble. The highlight of the book is the valentine bingo game where everyone wins at the same time. The children just loved the game as they all shouted "bingo" at the same time. We also did the ice cube game and the cupid game. Both were also big hits with the children! I would highly recommend this book for any class parent needing some creative ideas for kids from 5+.
