I just listened to this one through our Hoopla account. Very informative! This Valentine's book is filled with facts about the history, legends, symbols and meaning of Valentine's Day. Did you know that in Ancient Rome people celebrated the beginning of Spring with a festival. Boys would pick names out of a vase to find their partners for the event; these chosen partners would often become their sweethearts.
What is Valentine's Day to you?
