Unfolding through simple, short sentences and colorful illustrations by Patricia R.

Children learn about what these holy people were called to do and what their greatest contributions were. Each story closes with a prayer to the saint or blessed, inviting children to imitate their virtues. Whether it's the Blessed Mother's obedience, Saint Paul's trust, Saint Nicholas' generosity, Saint Peter's kindness, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta's charity, or Saint Anthony's studiousness, boys and girls alike will identify with, admire, and be inspired by these special friends of God.
