The Story of Saint Valentine

Who was Saint Valentine? Why is he remembered to this day? Robert Sabuda has written a delightful book about the Saint Valentine Legend. A librarian who reviewed this book says, "I was handed this attractive story about Saint Valentine by a 3rd and 4th grade teacher who is using it in her classroom as part of her Valentine's Day activities." The text emphasizes Valentine's role as a physician and his relationship with the blind daughter of a Roman jailer, who seeks healing. The "Notes on the text" at the end of the book explain Valentine's connection with the celebration of love. (See details & order info. just below)
