Children look up to and admire their heroes - from athletes to action figures, pop stars to princesses. This book introduces 13 of the greatest heroes of our faith. Each life story highlights a particular virtue and relates it to a child's life today.
God's Heroes is arranged in an easy-to-follow format, with information about a saint's life and work on the left and a fun activity on the right to reinforce the learning. Of the 13 saints featured, most will be familiar to children. A few may be new, which offers children the chance to get to know other great heroes, and maybe pick a new favorite! The 13 saints include St. Francis of Assisi, St. Clare of Assisi, St. Joan of Arc, Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, St. Philip Neri, and St. Edward the Confessor.
