From well-known saints like Patrick and Francis of Assisi to such lesser-known figures as Saint Kateri Tekakwitha and Saint Bernardino, this volume brings together for the first time all of the saint stories in Ruth Sanderson’s two previous books, Saints and More Saints, now presented in combined picture book format.

Each of the saints featured -- over 70 in all -- is presented through a beautiful detailed portrait page paired with a brief biographical sketch, which includes dates, feast days, and patronage.

The book also features an introduction detailing the process of becoming a saint, a list of additional resources, and a glossary offering readers deeper insight into the historical and religious context of the saints’ lives.

Readers of all ages will be inspired and informed by the stories of these remarkable men and women who have provided spiritual examples to Christians from the very beginning of the church up to the present day.

About the Author:

Ruth Sanderson has illustrated many books for children,including Cinderella and The Snow Princess(both Little, Brown) and the companion volumes Saints:Lives and Illuminations and More Saints: Lives andIlluminations. Her artistic style is inspired byRenaissance art, icons, illuminated manuscripts, oldengravings, and woodcuts. She lives in Easthampton,Massachusetts.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4-6. This compilation of saints almost feels like a throwback to another era. Forty saints are introduced, two to a spread. Each saint gets a lovely oil-and-pencil portrait that takes up a third of the page and an overview of his or her life. Although not sensationalized, the descriptions clearly relate how many of these people were martyred. In the profile of Saint Barbara, the text notes, "When a shepherd betrayed her to her father, she was arrested, tortured and sentenced to death. Her father struck her down with his own sword." In Saint Cecilia's case, Sanderson writes that "she was arrested, tortured and beheaded." This sentence is rather jauntily followed by the statement, "Cecilia is the patron saint of musicians and singers." Some names are familiar (Saint Christopher is included, although he has been removed from some official lists of saints), but many are not, perhaps because Sanderson has chosen saints from the Eastern Orthodox tradition as well as from the Roman Catholic Church. The lives of saints continue to be a source of inspiration for many children; buy this handsome book where there will be an audience. Ilene Cooper
