The Story of Valentine's Day
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.

But it seems reasonable, and is reasonably interesting, and the simply drawn illustrations are charming. Read full review

This book tells how Valentines day came about today. It also tells us how different places celebrated in different ways. This is a good book for Valentines day so the students know why exactly it is celebrated. Read full review
