    Great Story

    I had never heard this story before but it was a great way to bring Christianity into the celebration of Valentine's Day.

    Nice introduction to the meanings of holidays

    This book is very much in keeping with the others in its series. It was a nice introduction to the deeper meaning behind holidays and provided a great jumping off point to have a discussion with children. It explains both the current meaning of the holiday as well as its religious roots without either sounding like a sermon or going into details, like St. Valentine's execution, that might be troubling for young listeners and readers.
