Last year, I read a book to my fifth graders called My Heart Is Like a Zoo. The author compares his heart to all the animals in a zoo. It's cozy as a clam and chatty as a jay. But the very best part of this book is that all of the animals are made from heart shapes. The back cover gives directions for making your own lion from hearts but the illustrations are clear enough to make any of the animals. We made ours in Valentine colors.
