Reviews - What do customers think about Stories of the Saints?
Highly recommended for Christian children's libraries, at home or at church. Sep 6, 2007
Stories of the Saints is a children's picturebook presenting the stories of fourteen saints who lived long ago. "They had one thing in common: They loved God more than anything else in the world. And they tried to show God's love to everyone they met - even if it ruffled feathers and made people angry; even if people laughed at them for it." The saints profiled are Mary mother of Jesus, John the Baptist, Peter, Mary Magdalene, Stephen, Paul, Laurence, Martin of Tours, Genevieve, Columba of Iona, Bathild, Francis of Assisi, Elizabeth of Portugal, and Bridget of Sweden. The stylized color illustrations add a stained-glass feel to the text, which is sufficiently detailed to make Stories of the Saints ideal for children who are almost ready to move on to chapter books. Highly recommended for Christian children's libraries, at home or at church.
