Great info but concern for younger readers Jun 15, 2005
My daughter is 11 and because this book deals with martyrs she said it was sad--every story. Listed as 8-12 I bought the boy book for my 9 yo son and he said it was sad everybody dies. Might be upsetting to a sensitive child who has not been exposed to any death issues/martyr issues.
