The stories are very engaging, and there is a good mix of familiar and unfamiliar saints and blesseds from throughout the ages. I like the organization by theme- "saints are people who...(love children, teach us new ways to pray, help the poor and sick, change their lives for God, etc.)" The author does a good job presenting the stories in an age-appropriate manner, which is always a concern given the violence many of the saints had to endure.
Through a combination of luck, relative sobriety, and a meager knowledge of history, we managed to come from behind and win the contest. The final question concerned "the inventor of the alphabet used by Russians and other Eastern European peoples."
A few months before, we had read as a family from Amy Welborn's excellent "Kids Book of Saints" about Cyril and Methodius, and I knew that Cyril was the man behind the "Cyrillic" alphabet.
A member of the second-place team must have thought we were trivia hustlers. "How do you know that!?" He continued to badger my friend and me until we paid our tab and more or less slunk away with our ten-dollar winnings.
And that is how Amy Welborn nearly caused a bar-fight in Newport, Rhode Island.
