Inspiring and Entertaining,
This review is from: Ablaze: Stories of Daring Teen Saints (Paperback)
"Ablaze" by Colleen Swain is exactly the type of book that I would recomend to my students when I was teaching. I would tell them that if they wanted to read exciting and inspiring stories, they should read about the lives of real people; people like saints and historical heroes. "Ablaze" definitely fits into this catagory. Our young people (and people of all ages) need more stories that highlight real role models such as the ones highlighted in this book. Too many of the people who are glorified in todays society are 'not' known for their virtous and decent lives. So I applaud anyone who gives our kids better and more wholesome exemples to follow. "Ablaze" also gives questions that make us ponder our own actions and encourages us to write our thoughts as we consider what we have read. Well written and Inspiring!!
