Will you be my valentine?

Everybody knows what Valentine's Day means: Red and pink hearts, flowers and chocolates, and cards and letters with sweet sayings written on them. But why? Who was St. Valentine, anyway?

Here is a close look at one of our oldest and most mysterious holidays. The ancient legends behind the celebration are revealed - including how Valentine's Day evolved over the centuries and who wrote the very first valentine. With vivid illustrations by Susan Estelle Kwas and a delicious cookie recipe, this book is the sweetest valentine of them all.
