Product Description

It started in ancient Rome when a kind physician named Valentine took an interest in a young blind girl. With his healing skill and his deep faith he restored her sight. What we now call Valentine's Day began when he sent the little girl a secret message, which she received after the Christian martyr was executed. For this tale rich in sentiment, master illustrator Robert Sabuda has created exquisite paper mosaics to suggest early Christian art that resonates with both subtlety and power.

    Used this at a church event for kids. The older participants loved the fact that they could read the story to the younger ones.

    I finally found a book about Valentine's Day that is God-centered, showing a man with a servant's heart, like Jesus Christ. A wonderful book to read on Valentine's Day (or any day, for that matter) to keep the focus on the kind of love found in God, not the world's emotional, sappy, here-today-gone-tomorrow love. Good for all ages. I highly recommend.

    This is a Valentine gift for our 9 year old gifted granddaughter who devours books. This will give her a different look into the holiday of Valentine's Day, and affirm her faith. I know she will enjoy this book.
