Book Description

Author Amy Welborn explains why having heroes is important for children in Loyola Kids Book of Heroes, a companion to her popular Loyola Kids Book of Saints. Welborn tells the stories of devoted Christians, including Blessed Mother Teresa, Dorothy Day, and John the Baptist, who made significant contributions to people and the world around them.

Welborn intoduces Christian role models who exemmplify the seven cardinal virtues--faith, hope, charity, temperance, prudence, fortitude, and justice, and lead children on their personal journeys of faith.  Colorful illustrations and a delightful storytelling style bring these inspiring stories to life for young readers. 

From the Back Cover

What do heroes do?

Do they fight monsters? Sometimes, but they also hold the hands of people who are sick and lonely. They build schools. They study the planets. They forgive those who have harmed them. Heroes are people who look at the world around them, see what needs to be done, and through the grace of God find the strength to help others.

    In the thirty-six stories in Loyola Kids Book of Heroes, you’ll meet a Catholic nun who stood up to the most infamous outlaw in the Old West. You’ll learn how entire villages of men and women devoted their lives to building great cathedrals to show their love and respect for God. You’ll learn about John the Baptist, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, Charlemagne, St. Albert the Great, Dorothy Day, St. Patrick, and many others. Most of all, you’ll learn that with God’s help anyone can be a hero and make the world a better place.
