All a-Twitter 2018

love tweetHappy Valentine’s Day! What might characters of children’s and YA lit tweet to their valentines? We’ve got some ideas! See if you can guess who’s tweeting to whom — and feel free to add your own sweet kidlit tweets in the comments.

@Wolf: @GirlinRed Ain’t no mountain high enough / ain’t no forest wide enough / ain’t no blizzard cold enough / to keep me from getting to you

Reply from @JChin: Ain’t no canyon low enough, either!

@Virgil: @Valencia, Hello, U!

@Barber: @BrilliantBlazingStar I’ll be hair for you!

@Chris: @StarryEyes I’d give U the moon

@MinorMeow: @MajorMeow, I’ll remember you all my lives

@JDandEBG: @Somerville, we’d write you a love letter, but we already have

@Jade: @MentorMaxine, I complete me, but it’s nice to have you around

@TheOtherVanGogh: @BigBrother, you’re a masterpiece
