Product Description

A "Vision Book" containing the enthralling story of the great modern apostle of youth, Saint John Bosco, and his best-loved pupil who became a saint, Dominic Savio. Blessed with tremendous natural and supernatural gifts, including a wonderful sense of humor, Saint John Bosco overcame overwhelming obstacles to help deprived children find a better life.

Juggler, magician, acrobat, tailor, teacher and writer--John Bosco became all of these in his efforts to lead boys and girls to God. A prayer was the price of admission to his shows; a friendly contest to match skill or strength was his answer to the hoodlums who laughed at him. As a priest he was known as Don Bosco and built churches and schools.

Don Bosco's schools were cheerful places where the school spirit ran high. This story of Saint John Bosco and his pupil, Saint Dominic Savio, will appeal to the young readers of today. Illustrated. Ages 9-15

Saint John Bosco and Saint Dominic Savio

Review: This book is a wonderful account of the lifelong journey of St John Bosco as he, from a young age, began to gather boys, through circus tricks and fun, to teach them about Jesus. The portrayals of his mother, who became Mother Margaret to all the boys, and the young future Saint Dominic Savio, are very well done.
