In the Footsteps of the Saints series
These early readers and chapter books are a perfect way to introduce truly great role models to our children.
In the Footsteps of the Saints brings the lives of saints and famous Catholics to life!
While the world tells our children to look to the rich and famous for their inspiration, Christ calls us to follow the meek and humble of heart. The saints show us the way to true riches and glory.
Young readers will get to know well-known saints, such as Francis of Assisi and Thomas Aquinas as well as the lesser-known, such as Camillus and Philomena. Meet great Catholic artists and musicians such as Michelangelo and Antonin Dvorak, and Catholic heroes such as Louis Braille and Captain John Barry.
The Footsteps of the Saints series includes over 100 stories of Catholic saints and heroes at three reading levels.
Level 1 books in the Footsteps of the Saints series are about 32 pages each and are written as read-alouds for your beginning readers at about a second grade reading level. The print size is large to make it easier to read for young readers, and there are many wonderful illustrations to give a visual for your younger children who are listening to them as read-alouds.
Level 2 books are about 90-96 pages each and are written for about a fourth grade reading level or higher, although some third graders are able to read them as well because of the large print size and double spacing between lines. This series has books about well-known saints, but it also includes stories about saints and other Catholics that you don't hear about very often.
Level 3 books are about 128-144 pages each and are written for about a junior high reading level or higher, although some younger readers are able to read them as well because of the larger print size. This series has books about well-known saints, but it also includes stories about saints and other Catholics that you don't hear about very often. As well as a few Old Testament figures.
