As Valentine's Day gets closer, Jackson has a hard time keeping his crush on Cami a secret. His chocolate hearts end up next to her lunch and he can't hide his red face when the huge Valentine he made for her lands on her desk. Cooper thinks Jackson should just talk to her, but Jackson's afraid she doesn't like him. Carter Corey always makes fun of how big he is—what if Cami thinks he's a giant, too? Luckily, Cami is not afraid to tell Carter that if she had a boyfriend, he'd be totally giant.

A warm, fuzzy book that's perfect for boys and girls on Valentine's Day.

Heads Up!
A Giant Crush was named one of the Top 10 Valentine's Day Children's Books by What Mama Wants.
