Saints are real-life heroes of faith who inspire us by their virtues to become more like Christ. In the Saints and Me! series, these beautifully illustrated early-reader books tell the real stories of saints that come to life and connect with today's children aged 4 to 9.
- The everyday lives of the saints and their holy ways are engagingly introduced for curious young children. The saint's story is filled with details to which young children can relate.
- Lively, full-color illustrations on every page match the text, aiding emerging readers with the text and story sequence.
- Each book is biographical, but also includes a virtue, the saint's feast day, and other details about the saint.
- A common image "Advent calendar" in each saint book for the Christmas Saints Collection provides a virute and a saint each week. (Martin de Porres, sometimes called “Martin of Charity,” shows us how to love everyone as our brothers and sisters.)
The Saints for Christmas Collection includes 6 books for these 7 saints: Mary and Joseph, Nicholas of Myra, Francis of Assisi, Martin de Porres, Gianna Beretta Molla, Lucy
Also included is the companion activity book for the set offering coloring pages, simple word searches featuring words from the texts, and other activities.
