What to Read Wednesday: Valentine’s Day Books for Kids

The Best Valentine’s Day Books for Kids

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

In our homeschool, I like to incorporate holiday books into our reading, especially if they increase our understanding of why we celebrate the holidays the way we do.

One of our favorite Valentine’s Day books, Saint Valentine, presents the origin of Valentine’s Day by telling the story of the “humble and gentle” physician, Valentine, who lived in ancient Rome during the time when Christians were persecuted by the Romans. Robert Sabuda, known for his paper artistry through his pop-up books, wrote and lavishly illustrated Saint Valentine with intricate paper mosaics that capture the feel of ancient Christian art. This story of Valentine depicts him as a kind, caring, and unselfish man of great faith.

This week we’re featuring some of the best Valentine’s Day books for kids. If we’ve missed your favorite, please leave us a comment and let us know what to add to our list.

    We definitely like to read holiday books around here, too! It always feels weird when we don’t have some stack of holiday books in our pile.
