Reviews - What do customers think about Peter Claver, Patron Saint of Slaves/Pedro Claver, Santo Patrono de los Esclavos?

Wonderful, moving story for children of all ages  Apr 3, 2002
This is a wonderful story of a man who made a difference in many slaves' lives. The side by side English/Spanish text is beautifully written, and stays nondenominational, even though it is the story of the patron saint of slaves. The illustrations are also lovely, and both the text and pictures hold the attention of my antsy son. One of his favorite books, it is a deeply moving spiritual story that I recommend to all.
Perfect  Mar 26, 2002
This is a terrific example of a spiritual book for kids. The poetic text rivals that of the secular classics, and the pictures are rich, textured, and deeply moving. Yet there's no overt message, no preaching, no denominational stand. It's just a wonderful book -- period.
