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

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.
