Valentine’s Day

Our absolute favorite history lesson about Valentine’s Day can be found in the Mystery of History books! We have it in audio format and have loved listening to it over and over again (all of the book, not just the part about Saint Valentine!). If you are looking for a Biblically based history curriculum, I recommend the Mystery of History!
