I am a Protestant who recently decided to introduce my children to the lives of the saints. I am using this book as a devotional piece after Bible Study, and was waiting for the groans of disappointed from my sons upon introduction. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. My oldest son (11) and youngest son (4) ate it up, with my oldest son taking it to bed and reading it cover to cover. Mind you, this is a child that hardly touches a book. He has since replaced his Internet ESPN searches with Internet searches on the saints, and I have heard several "Whoa's" and "Awesome's" as he conducts his research. The illustrations are beautiful, and the wording is perfect for keeping the attention of children. The prayers to the saints will be a turn-off to many Protestants, but I believe all Catholics with children will find this book exceptionally edifying. Indeed, a warning to Protestants...Your kids might fall in love with Catholicism. I am now answering questions along the lines of "Would you be mad if I became Catholic," and "Do you think I'd be a good priest?"

I had heard good things about this book and when I finally saw it for myself I was truly impressed. The first thing that immediately jumps out about this book is the art. The artist Michael Adams has captured the spirit of these holy men and women in his beautiful watercolor paintings in way I have not often seen. to say that these are some of the most beautiful images of the saints I've seen is no exaggeration.

Accompanying the images, the author, Bart Tesoriero, has done a wonderful job bringing life to these saints and how they lived their faith. I'm excited about using this book to teach my daughters about these important models of faith. While today at ages 2 and 3 they will probably spend the most time on the pictures, I know that the truest beauty is waiting for them in the text when they grow old enough to comprehend. Thank you for a great family resource!

I got this book for my kids to teach them about the Saints. Lives of the Saints is wonderfully written and is easily understood by children and the colorful illustrations bring the Saints' stories to life. The perfect book to introduce children to the Saints. This book is a must for every family's library!

A friend gave me this book as a gift after I had asked several questions about the different Saints and their purpose. It is beautifully illustrated, the art is very well done and most importantly it is a very easy read with wonderful detail. I can't wait to share it with my wife and children.

My daughter and I are Catholic. Santa brought her this for Christmas last year when she was six. I think her and Popi read it all in a few hours. She brought it to class, she attends a Catholic school, and would read about the Saint on his or her Feast day. She is 7 now and it is still her favorite book. She always keeps it where she can look up what Saint day it is. Even though it is only October she has already started a list for Santa. She made sure it was short, 4 items and a new Saint book is on it. My heart wants to burst with happiness. Thank you for such a wonderful book introducing my daughter to the Saints and leave her thirsting for more. I only hope Santa can find one that compares to this wonderful book.

With today's generation of children, getting them excited to learn about the Saints is not easy. But this book, with its beautiful writing and illustrations made the job of teaching my niece about the Saints much easier. This is a must have for any Catholic child. And I really appreciate it being available for the Kindle.

The illustrations are closer to that of art and when coupled with the clear and eloquent writing it hits the mark perfectly for children, while having enough depth to be appreciated by adults.

A great gift!
