Overview

Saint Valentine by Robert Sabuda

How did Valentine's Day, one of our most popular holidays, begin?
It started in ancient Rome when a kind physician named Valentine took an interest in a young blind girl. With his healing skill and his deep faith he restored her sight. What we now call Valentine's Day began when he sent the little girl a secret message, which she received after the Christian martyr was executed. For this tale rich in sentiment, master illustrator Robert Sabuda has created exquisite paper mosaics to suggest early Christian art that resonates with both subtlety and power.

My son is in pre-k at a catholic school, and I am the room mother. I am always looking for age appropriate educational books for story time. I like this book a lot. The mosaics are great, and the story is both lovely and informative. I am pleased that the content is so age appropriate. A lot of these Saints died horrible deaths, you know? Good book.

Excellent read for grades 1-5. Very interesting and full of information that engaged my class. A way to explain the holiday aside from the hearts, kisses, and hallmark cards.
