Valentines for All: Esther Howland Captures America's Heart

When Esther Howland first saw the fancy valentine her father brought home from England, most Americans thought Valentine's Day was a waste of time. But through the card, Esther felt how much her father loved her. Could she help others express themselves in the same way?

Howland decided to start her own business, making handmade cards with personalized notes. Her cards became a huge success, particularly during the Civil War when women loved sending them to loved ones on the front lines. Before long, she had turned her cottage business into an assembly line — one which gave other women the chance to work outside the home. In this intriguing picture book biography, Nancy Churnin introduces kids to one of America's first professional women — one who helped establish a tradition we still follow today.
