Reviews - What do customers think about More Saints: Lives And Illuminations?

More Saints is most appropriate for young readers who are almost ready for chapter books.  May 12, 2007
Written and beautifully illustrated in the style of Renaissance art and illuminated manuscripts by Ruth Sanderson, More Saints: Lives & Illuminations is a picturebook anthology offering one-page portraits and biographies of thirty-six male and female Christian saints of the second millennium. Not only are well-known saints such as Francis of Assisi and Anthony of Padua profiled, but also lesser known individuals such as Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha and Saint Bernardino. A brief introduction about the process of becoming a saint, a list of additional resources and a glossary round out this fascinating and instructional picturebook - though due to its small typeface and relative quantity of text, More Saints is most appropriate for young readers who are almost ready for chapter books. Also highly recommended is Sanderson's first volume in the series, "Saints: Lives and Illuminations".
