Item Description...
Overview
Lives of the Saints for kids are either too grisly for little kids or too saccharine for older ones. This collection appeals to both groups with a combination of gentle humor and frankness - battle-tested at the author's weekly chapel services at the school where she teaches. It's organized into two full school years, with each saint's story falling on or near his or her special day, so that each story can be a springboard to a creative seasonal teaching unit or small festival. Saints represent a wide variety of ethic and geographic backgrounds, and a CD included will provide ancillary material including pictures and maps.

A Book to Enjoy with Kids Whether You're a Teacher or a Parent  Dec 2, 2008
We all love stories of saints. In some traditions, we use other terms to describe these figures, but they're basically men, women and in rare cases children who show heroic spiritual goodness -- often in the face of great danger.

Texas-based Kathryn Mitchell Lucchese, who has a doctorate in cultural geography and has spent years working with school children, has just handed us all a tremendous gift. At her school, she began reading aloud a weekly story of a saint, which she carefully edited for maximum impact and, in some cases, to soften the violent edge a bit for her younger students' ears. These became very popular. She did this year after year and, now, in a great big paperback book by Morehouse Publishing, she offers her stories to all of us.

She organizes the book for Christian educators to use once a week in a school year that stretches from August to mid-June. She matches these saints nicely with their annual observances in the Christian liturgical calendar. For example, St. Nicholas falls in her early December readings just as St. Nick's saint day falls each year on December 6. As a good educator and geographer, Lucchese even adds a couple of dozen maps to the back of her book, so you can show kids exactly where each saint lived.

Of course, as a parent myself, I can tell you this book shouldn't be limited to classrooms. It's great for parents to read aloud!
 
Saints Galore!  Oct 22, 2008
What a treasure trove -- not only for parents, sacred studies teachers or school chaplains,but for anyone wishing to become acquainted with the stories of amazing yet "common" folk. These are lives of people who show courage and goodness in most challenging times. They could serve to write their own essays for NPR's "This I Believe." And each story is told with such lively wit and charm that even the grimmest of martyrdoms seem almost bearable. The author manages to place each saint in vivid historical and geographical context, thus bringing our world and theirs closer. The book belongs in every school or church library collection, not on the shelf but in use.
