Review:

"Valentine's Day is about more than just creating paper hearts and eating too much candy — at least, it used to be. Farmer presents a historical overview of the holiday, including the origins of its name (from three saints, all named Valentine and all martyred on February 14) and practice (including ties to the Roman fertility festival of Lupercalia), the evolution of the holiday's traditions, and its symbolism. Halsey and Addy's mixed-media collages are suggestive of handmade valentines, with a blend of classic imagery (Cupid, flowers, doves) and vintage and modern photographs of couples and families, all assembled on painted canvas backdrops. Romantic quotations from the likes of Picasso, Plato, and Tennyson appear on banners and hearts; craft ideas, jokes, and mentions of global celebrations of Valentine's Day lend additional substance to this wide-ranging look at the holiday. Ages 6 — 9." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

Chocolate, flowers, poems, gifts—all of these things are readily associated with Valentines Day, the most romantic holiday of the year. But how did this day devoted to the celebration of love come to be? How have the traditions associated with February 14th changed over the years, and how do people in different countries around the world mark the occasion?

In VALENTINE BE MINE, readers learn all about this special holiday, from its origin in Rome in the first century all the way to the distribution of Valentines among grade school students in classrooms today. A secondary layer of text provides more detailed information encouraging further research and discovery, while the collage-style art gives readers plenty of visual details to explore and uncover.

In addition to providing fascinating facts and stories about this romantic holiday, the book includes Valentines Day jokes and step-by-step instructions on how to make your own Valentine Days card and tissue paper flowers.
