Saint Bakhita: Forever Free (Encounter the Saints) - Kidnapped into slavery at the age of seven and brought to Italy as a teenager, the indomitable Bakhita eventually became a Catholic nun and spent over fifty years joyously serving her Lord as a Canossian Sister. In 2000, Pope John Paul II canonized her. This African saintís engrossing life story, heroic choices, and forgiving heart make her a wonderful role model! The Encounter the Saints Series offers intermediate readers down-to-earth portrayals of the saints. Each story vividly recreates for the reader the saintís place of origin, family life, and corresponding historical events.
Holy Friends: Thirty Saints and Blesseds of the Americas - When we think of saints, we often think of tried-and-true European favorites. But don't forget the New World! Thirty saints and blessed from eleven different countries of North, South, and Central America come alive in this gloriously illustrated volume. From the time of the first missionaries right through the twentieth century, these fascinating stories will keep kids enthralled-AND keep them reading!
The Book of Saints and Heroes by Andrew Lang and Lenora Lang - The first Christians to visit Europe and the British Isles met pagans who told tales of fairies, talking beasts, and other wonderful things. To these marvelous stories, they soon added new ones about the Christian saints. Some were true, others improbable, and many simply fantastic. In the ones we include here, you'll meet the saint who spent seven Easters on a whale's back and the amiable lion who was St. Jerome's friend. You'll see St. George fight the dragon, and you'll read about the fierce wolf St. Francis of Assisi converted. You'll also find here true tales of great saints such as St. Louis of France, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Francis Xavier, and St. Elizabeth of Hungary - souls marked by courage, kindness, and piety.
Saints And Heroes For Kids - In today's society, the word "hero" is used all too frequently. However, in this wonderful book by Ethel Pochocki, you and your children will be introduced to many special individuals to whom the term truly applies. This book contains brief chapters about the lives of many well known saints and some lesser known individuals who may indeed be destined for sainthood. Each of the book's chapters contains the story of a unique person or group of persons who have used God's grace and guidance to make our world a better place. Pochocki writes in a voice that will be appealing to both children and the adults who share these pages with them. The chapters can be read individually, but the tone is so engaging that you and your child or student may find it difficult to put this book down. I have many "lives of the saints" books in my home, but this book holds a special place in my library - it offers hope, guidance and heroes to serve as true role models for my children and me.

This delightful collection of saints' lives, written in a storybook style for children eight to twelve, explains how saints becomes saints, why we honor them, and how they help us even today.
