Next in the Saints and Me series is Elizabeth Ann Seton: Mother for Many. Part of Set 1, Saints of North America, it tells the story of Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first US native born citizen to be canonized by the Church, who established the first Catholic school and had seven children of her own.
The biographies in the Saints and Me series help the young reader develop an understanding of our real-life heroes, the saints and introduce children ages 4-9 to the concept that saints are people who live all around us.
The everyday lives of the saints and their holy ways are engagingly introduced for curious young children. The saint's story is filled with details to which young children can relate.
Lively, full-color illustrations on every page match the text, aiding emerging readers with the text and story sequence, including a map showing where every saint in the set lived and ministered.
A companion activity book is also available.
