10 perfect books for Valentine's Day gifts

7. The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, by Kate DiCamillo

If you're looking for a story of love that endures and redeems, you can hardly do better than illustrated children's book The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. Edward Tulane is a china rabbit adored by a girl named Abilene. Edward is a splendid fellow arrayed in gorgeous finery but only through adversity does he learn to love. Bagram Ibatoulline's illustrations are as haunting as this tale is touching and it's virtually impossible to reach the last page with dry eyes. (CSMonitor review 7/25/06)
