Lives of the Saints
An Illustrated History for Children
Written by Bart Tesoriero
Illustrated by Michael Adams
Beautifully done book on 60 saints of the Catholic Church. My Dh grew up Catholic so I do have some familiarity with the saints, though we are not in the Catholic Church now. I admire these people who are sacrificed for Christ and the dedication they have to their faith. I love how each page depicts a Saint, giving their name and the feast day they are celebrated on. A brief biography goes along with the beautiful illustrations. They do include a prayer for each Saint, something I do not utliize as a Non Catholic, but I know my Catholic friends would appreciate this added portion of the book. Saints that everyone is familiar with such as Francis of Assisi and Joan of Arc to some saints that may be a little lesser known to the general population.
A Great resource for young kids in Catechism, too for homeschoolers for learning more about the Catholic Saints, and family time for young Catholic families.
The illustrations are stunning in this hardback book that you can purchase from Catholic Gifts and More online http://www.catholicgiftsandmore.com/lives-of-the-saints-an-illustrated-history/p/RS887S/
$9.95 is a super price for this beautiful book.
While you are visiting them check their online store out for many great gifts for the Catholic faith. Wonderful Easter gift giving ideas as well as special things for the upcoming Mother’s Day.
I received a copy of this book from Catholic Gifts and More in exchange for an honest review.
