The stories really bring various saints to life and inspire you. It is a great way to see the remarkable faith of those who have come before us and learn a little about them. After she had read them she said she wanted to be a saint as well. I figure that's a good goal for all of us. :) We also find them very helpful for choosing what saint to dress up as for the All Saints Day party each year.
My only complaint is that sometimes the stories or legend may be stretched a little too far. Like the story of Martha (from the Martha, Mary and Lazarus of the Bible) ends with Mary not being at the tomb for the raising of Lazarus and instead being at home cooking for those who return which, the author jokingly says, is another miracle. While this is amusing, it seems more likely that Mary was at the tomb with Martha when their brother was raised. While it doesn't say for sure either way, I thought this stretch by the author was a bit too much.
All that said, I still recommend the books very highly!
