    1. If you are looking to tell the complete story of ST Valentine to your children this book will be one beautifully illustrated disappointment, unless you are looking for a low risk version To its credit, the mosaic inspired illustrations are very apropos AND its NOT inaccurate It does show the generosity and intelligence of that Roman doctor Its just not complete In this version, St Valentine is not married or in love with anyone himself So it is correct than other books The story just stops shor [...]


    2. Summary The life of St Valentine The fact that it is legend is not made clear.Why I Read This With Valentine s day approaching, I wanted to read it.Review I didn t love it because while it told a good story, it didn t make it clear that the story was legend and that not much is known about St Valentine Even in the postscript about St Valentine, he doesn t mention that it is legend The story and postscript are different from what I ve heard about St Valentine before, but that s ok because it s le [...]


    3. I like to read this book on Valentine s Day alongside Cheryl Odden s The Story of Saint Valentine The two authors take COMPLETELY different approaches to the life of Valentinus, and I think it helps kids understand both historical fiction and the discipline of the study of history.Odden s approach is so fact based as to be a bit wooden, Sabuda s characters are fleshed out Odden gives an introductionary overview of what we know for certain and what we suspect about Valentinus, Sabuda has brief n [...]


    4. This is a wonderful book for middle grades that tells the true story of St Valentine It is well written and led to great discussion about religious persecution I didn t love the mosaic illustrations, but they are an interesting talking point.



    5. I was just handed this attractive story about Saint Valentine by a 3rd 4th grade teacher who is using it in her classroom as part of her Valentine s Day activities I m the librarian at a public elementary school, so I read through it quickly with great delight Since we don t have it in our collection, it is one I hope we can acquire before Valentine s Day next year While this story is about a saint of the Christian faith, the religious aspect of the story is toned down and not preachy While Vale [...]


    6. The first thing that struck me when this book arrived through the post were the amazing pictures They were in a sophisticated style, taking the form of large mosaic pieces, and yet still simple enough for a child to understand The story was simple and charming, although it finished quite abruptly and I found myself wanting it to continue A came out of reading it was a greater understanding of the saintly origins of Valentine s Day.


    7. This book is what it says it is It is all about St Valentine and where he came from and how he came to being tied to February 14th This book goes back to his youth and dives down into his story and who he was I liked this book a lot and felt like it was very factual and informative I think it is a great tool for kids to use when doing a project on the holidays or saints or whatever else St Valentine may fall under.


    8. The story isn t particularly inspiring, but the art is unusual and appropriate for the topic I didn t know anything about Valentine, so found this interesting I wouldn t read this to young children, but upper elementary kids who are interested in history or religion might enjoy this I appreciated the additional information at the end of the book.


    9. This book is a little jem We read it with our Roman history just prior to Constantine, when the Christians were really being persecuted All the illustrations are mosaics perfect for an art project My girls really connected with this book What a tragic story.




    10. This book was part of my daughters history lesson She is in second grade and it is part of the lessons on Romans It was a wonderful tie in and the illustrations are lovely.




    11. While I very much enjoyed the illustrations done in mosaic style, I thought the story wasn t very well developed.
