Big disappointment! After reading previous reviews, I was eager to receive this book as a gift for my grandkids, most of whom are in elementary school. The art work in this book mainly consists of museum-type illustrations which are not appealing or attractive to most younger children. (Trust this grandma of ten, little kids identify with "realistic" looking people!) Also, the final chapter has non-Catholic persons such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I feel this would be confusing to little kids who are supposedly reading a book about CATHOLIC SAINTS and potentially FUTURE Catholic Saints (non-Catholics such as Dr. King would not fall into this category). As a history book for teens and adult Christians of various denominations, it would be okay. But I certainly wouldn't purchase it for any of my grandkids - too confusing and too "bland" on the artwork. I will be returning it.

This beautifully illustrated book is perfect for First Communion and Confirmation gifts. Beautifully written. Perfect for the Christian library.

I bought this book as a Christmas gift for a family with four girls named after saints, ranging in age from 6-16, and I believe they all liked it. It is a gorgeously illustrated book - much bigger than I expected - the size of a coffee table book. Each saint gets at least a page dedicated to his or her story. The family I gave it to reads about a saint each night at dinner to learn moer about them. It would also be good in a Christian classroom. It's written for a grade level around 4th grade or above, but the lovely pictures make it appropriate for younger children. It tells each saint's story so that it captures children's (and adults) attention. For anyone interested in the lives of the saints, I think it's an excellent book.
