Now in a padded hardcover edition, this beautiful and inspiring volume by well-known author, teacher, and missionary Rev. Lawrence G. Lovasik, S.V.D. will bring joy to young and old.
The book contains the lives of over 100 popular Saints, and each is made more memorable by a twofold portrayal in word and picture. The life of each Saint is carefully and simply written in an informal, pleasing style that will delight parents, teachers, and the children with whom they share these pages. The glorious, full-color illustrations are strikingly beautiful and marked by their fine detail.
I LOVE this book. It was given to me by my grandparents over 50 years ago for my First Communion, and I continued the tradition by giving a copy to my daughter and each of my nieces and nephews on their First Communion. I just bought this copy to give to my first GREAT niece on her First Communion. They are wonderful short stories that even kids today find fascinating and it starts them thinking about saints in preparation for their Confirmation. This is a must for every family!
