They teach our children the real reasons behind the holidays we celebrate, while also pointing toward the cultural elements they know and love.

This is a cute little story that explains to children why we have a Valentine's Day and why we celebrate it with cards and goodies. I wasn't really sure myself, so after reading the story I did some research on the internet and stumbled across this little book.

"Long ago, in the city of Rome, there lived a man named Valentine. He was kind and all the children loved him..." The story briefly tells about the king who wanted everyone to be in his army and not have families. Valentine tried to help the young men and women and got thrown in jail by the king. People were sad to see him in jail so they sent him cards. The story says that Valentine sent a card back and signed it "From Your Valentine." The story goes on to explain that "On Valentine's Day we show our love for our friends and family with gifts and cards... we remember that all God's children should love one another."

My kids enjoy this story, but they never ask me to read it, which is why I gave it four stars instead of five. (The Valentine book they ask to read most often is "The Ballad of Valentine").

When trying to explain the meaning of Valentine's Day to a preschool class I was at a loss for what I could read to them. This book explains it well and is the perfect length holding their interest!

My 5 yr old daughter loves to hear the story of who St. Valentine was, and I just simplify it for my 16 month old--she loves the pictures of hearts. These kids keeps bringing me the book to read over and over again! My oldest is also learning to read, so she can help me read some words.

This board book is a good introduction to Valentine's Day, until it goes into miracles and God. It talks about all God's children loving each other, and about St. Valentine praying and doing miracles. I wanted to use it in a public school, but I can't. I wish I had known that before I bought it!

We love all the "The Story of" books. They teach our children the real reasons behind the holidays we celebrate, while also pointing toward the cultural elements they know and love. I only wish this one was called The Story of ST. Valentine's Day!

I purchased several books for my grandson to teach I'm about the holidays. His dad loves the short stories since reading a book before bed time can be too long with other books.

I never knew how Valentine's Day got started and this book explains it well for a child of almost any age.

I have enjoyed reading this story to both of my sons. They enjoy looking at the illustrations and learning more about the true meaning of Valentine's Day. I recommend this to other parents of young children.
