This is a wonderful series for Catholic children about saints and spiritual heroes. Among the seventeen titles in the series are The Curé of Ars, St. Dominic and the Rosary, Edmund Campion, Francis and Clare: Saints of Assisi, and St. Pius X. They span a broad historical and geographical range. Each story is an "expanded" biography, based upon historical fact. They should be especially good for family read aloud with children in the elementary grades. Books such as these provide marvelous examples of "living Christianity" to inspire our children.
