Wonderfully illustrated and written with a rare simplicity that is much more profound than naive. The wise synthesis of text and image are surely going to attract the attention of a wide range of Catholic faithful as well as those who are not affiliated but wish to know more. Both Br. John Mckenzie and Mark Brown visited the geographical locations where Saint Benedict lived in order to make images and text that were close to the subject...the loving and wonderful results are evident! Pax Vobiscum!

This book is a straightforward approach to the life of Saint Benedict. Each illustration is explained, and the major points of Saint Benedict’s life are explained.

At first, I felt like this was a book for adults disguised with nice illustrations. After another journey through it, though, I could appreciate that maybe I’m not the only person who finds history a hard subject to study. I think this book is more suited for my ten-year-old than my four-year-old, though my four-year-old will definitely be interested in the adventures of Benedict’s life.

Older children will find this a lighter history, one that breaks up the facts with illustrations that support and supplement the words. Younger children will be interested in the activity and adventures Benedict faced.

Adults who find themselves in the middle, reading this out loud, may find themselves struck by how busy a man could be in the days before electricity.

This is a book for the whole family, I think, and one that will last the years and be worth revisiting later, as the younger kids get older.

Lots of text, so better for 8+. Has lots of illustrations, but I enjoyed the biography written by Windeatt more.
