Description:

Valentine's Day is candy hearts, flowers, and chocolate truffles. It is Valentine cards galore. Most of all, it is a time to share with family and friends, and a time to say 'I love you'.

Quotes:

3 STARS The historical background is presented at an age-appropriate level...this is recommended., Video Librarian

In this engaging book, Gibbons covers the history and customs of the holiday as well as what it means to children today, concluding with simple directions for cutting a heart from folded paper. She introduces each topic with the title phrase, and a few simple sentences add detail. A large attractive illustration in predominantly reds and pinks covers each page, making the book suitable for group sharing. One spread depicts a classroom celebration. A good choice for updating holiday collections., Blair Christolon, , School Library Journal

Valentine's Day gets Gibbons' treatment--simple, direct, and illustrated with busily bright watercolors, here punctuated with lots of red hearts. Each spread begins with the sentence 'Valentine's Day Is..., which is completed with a word or phrase that points out a different aspect of the holiday. For instance, 'Valentine's Day is... a celebration of friendship and love' or 'Valentine cards' or 'flowers' or 'candy.' Then each thought is expanded. Sometimes the explanations are a bit truncated; at other times, they are a little off. It seems odd, for example, to talk about St. Valentine being jailed for his religious beliefs (and named a saint) without mentioning his religion. Likewise, the line 'Everyone gets lots of cards' seems insensitive to the many children who don't. But mostly this is a good introduction to a holiday that children become aware of early on. The pictures are filled with kids having a good time, and cards, gifts, and candy, and other symbols of the season decorate the pages. Instructions, Booklist
