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.
