Reviews - What do customers think about Saintly Tales and Legends?

Saintly Tales and Legends  Apr 25, 2006
This is a beautifully illustrated collection of stories about saints and faith-oriented legends. The text is easy to read and well-suited to children age 9 years on up to adults. The story-telling style is wonderful...a great book for big kids to read to their younger brothers and sisters, and for parents and teachers to share with their classes.
 
Saintly Tales and Legends  Dec 8, 2005
The previous reviews are about a different book. STandL is not a comprehensive educational manual about the lives of saints. It is a beautifully illustrated collection of inspiring folk tales and saints' stories told in a manner that adults and children will enjoy. This would be a great gift book for ages eight on up, although my five-year-old enjoys having the stories read to him.
 
Great Daily Reading about the Saints for Every Day  Nov 8, 2005
Saints for young readers tells about the life of a saint whose feast day it is that day. It is on the reading level of about a 3rd grader, though, with very few pictures in the book, it may take a 4th grader to be interested in it. These one to two page stories are enjoyable and about a variety of saints. As the back cover says, "In these books [IE. the two volumes which cover the year] you will meet saints from every nation and race, from centuries long past right down to recent times. You will come to know saintly kings and workers, queens and housemaids, popes and priests, nuns and religious brothers. They were doctors and farmers, soldiers and lawyers, mothers and fathers, teenagers and children. These great and humble men and women prayed and worked, and never gave up trusting in Jesus. You can be like them too." At the end of each story there is some way suggested that you can apply some principle of the saint's life into the daily lives of children.
If you are looking for picture books on saints you may want to read my reviews of over 30 books on the saints.

Catechize your children with the saint of the day  Nov 13, 2004
Coupled with a chapter from the New Saint Joseph Baltimore Catechism (#1), nightly readings from Pauline Media's two-volume "Saints for Young Readers" are an excellent way for parents to catechize their children.

Organized to parallel the Church's liturgical calendar, each day's saint is given a two-page biographical sketch that highlights his or her life, virtues, and holiness. Also included is a brief reflection or prayer based on a virtue exemplified by the saint.
