All children love stories and these wonderful saint stories are no exception. They put children in touch with the key events in the saints life, but also with the Churchs liturgical year. Using symbols and seasons to great advantage, the author creates here beautiful and meaningful moments for sharing these stories. She believes that celebrating the saints gives children at least two experiences they rarely encounter, both vital to a healthy spirituality: taking time for reflection and learning the language of symbols. Whether in a religion class or at home, children will love hearing about Nicholas, Lucia, John Bosco, Bridget, Bernadette, Peter, Martin de Porres, Mary, and twenty-eight others.Create a Saint Celebrations Box, which can be easily stored and pulled out when needed. ...
