Whether used as a Reading Comprehension course, or made available for your children to read, these stories will inspire as they relate the striking, heroic, and challenging lives of the saints.
It is so important to provide both good reading material and the example of the Saints in the formation of our children. Teenagers especially need to see and learn from true heroes! Stories of the Saints, Volume IV contains four, 20-25-page stories of heroic virtue, each accompanied by “Lesson Activities” which encourage the student to delve beneath the surface to understand the faith and virtues of each saint. Researching the relevant geographical and historical facts gives the reader an up-close look at the saint’s life/circumstances. In addition, the many topic choices for essay questions, reports, and biographies challenge the student to put his grammar, writing, and spelling skills into practice.
Each of the Stories of the Saints is followed by four pages of “Lesson Activities,” including: “Vocabulary,” “Terms to Know,” “Comprehension Questions,” “Analyze This,” “Essay Questions,” “Quotations,” “Geography and History,” “Research and Report,” “You, the Biographer,” and “Putting Your Faith into Practice.” Includes answer key. 8½”x11″ 106 pages. Over 45 photos and illustrations.

- To Know Christ Jesus: St. Katharine Drexel
