Red rose, lacy valentines, and choclates in shiny foil. Everybody loves Valentines Day! People have been celebrating Valentine's Day for thousands of years, but it wasn't always about glitter and glue and cupcakes and candy. Some say that the holiday in fact was originally a day of remembrance to honor a priest who, long ago, sacrificed his won life to marry young couples.

About the author (1999)

Clyde Robert Bulla was born in King City, Missouri in 1914. His first school was a one-room country house. He started out writing stories. After numerous rejections, he finally sold a story to a pulp magazine. He sold more stories to magazines to earn money. He eventually turned to writing children's books. Bulla's first children's book "The Donkey Cart," was published in 1946. He has published over 80 titles including "Squanto: Friend of the Pilgrims," "The Chalk Box Kid," "Shoeshine Girl," "The Sword in the Tree" and "The Paint Brush Kid". Clyde Bulla passed away on May 23, 2007 in Warrenburg Missouri.

Susan Estelle Kwas often torn between watching the vivid red cardinals outside her art studio and illustrating such books as The Story of Valentine's Day, the Learning Block Books series, A Rumpus of Rhymes: A Book of Noisy Poems, and this one.

Ms. Kwas lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
