Children's Literature
This lovely little book gives an overview and short biography of thirty saints of the Roman Catholic Church and three angels. Well-known saints, such as St. Patrick, St. Francis, and St. Nicholas, are included among others. In the section called "Great Thinkers and Evangelists" are St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas. The date of the Feast Day of each saint and other facts are set apart at the edge of the page for quick identification. Most pages show a painting or a detail of a painting of the saint reproduced in color. At the end is a calendar of Feast Days, a glossary, an identification of other characters mentioned, and an index. Catholics and Protestants will enjoy this as an easy reference book to Roman Catholic Saints. Gold-edged pages, a blue ribbon bookmark, heavenly blue and gold endpapers, and a see-through book jacket printed with saints and angels make this an attractive gift book for young people and adults. 2006 (orig. 2003), Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin Company, Ages 12 up.

    Saints & Angels

    Beautiful book about the most popular Saints & Angels. I purchased as a gift for a girl's First Communion. It was very colorful, nicely written and age appropriate.

    If you don't want your child to ask about 'beheading'...

    I was very disappointed with this book. The illustrations are beautiful, and I purchased this book to build my child's self esteem and also learn goodness. Instead, it seemed almost overly objective, not noting the miraculous works of these persons who became saints, but often that little is known about them or ambiguity regarding what they did to deem them holy. It also mentions often about how they died, bluntly and abrupt; almost as if the writer couldn't get enough information about their goodworks BUT BOY COULD HE TELL YOU HOW THEY DIED!..So if you want to have your child look at you blankly, waiting for how we apply their good works...and ask you,'What does 'beheaded' mean?' Then this is the book for you. Not for me.
