The language is very suitable for reading aloud, and the saints come alive from different countries, cultures and centuries. Some of the lesser-known saints whose stories are beautifully told in this book include Saints Dorothea, Malchus, Germanus, Cuthbert, Columba, Senan, Dunstan, Collete, and more!
Our homeschool children enjoy listening the lives of the saints immensely, especially when they can inspire the imagination, the spirit, and challenge our discoveries in history and geography. Indeed, the Book of Saints and Heroes can do just that, and it has been placed in our waiting list for saints read-alouds! This will make an excellent gift
One Caveat: the language and attention to historical and geographical detail make it suitable for ages 12 and up, perhaps a little younger (10) for reading aloud.
