Whether used as a Reading Comprehension course or free-time reading, 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 to form our children. Teenagers especially need to see and learn from true heroes! Written with 7th- through 12th-graders in mind, these longer stories focus on issues that have new and more personal relevance to children on their way to adulthood: pro-life and the married state, pursuing further studies and discerning a vocation to the religious life, sacrificial love and perseverance, and God’s call to share the gift of Faith with others.

The 20- to 25-page stories in Volume 3 are full of illustrations and photos to bring the narratives to life:

  • Blessed by The Truth: St. Edith Stein
  • Apostle of Life: St. Gianna Beretta Molla
  • With Grateful Joy: Bl. Francis Seelos
  • Always Go Forward, and Never Turn Back: St. Junipero Serra

Each story is followed by four pages of enriching information and activities, including:

  • Vocabulary and terms to know
  • Comprehension questions
  • Discussion questions
  • Essay questions
  • Quotations for further thought
  • Geography and history
  • Research and report prompts
  • Biography assignment
  • Ideas for practicing the faith of the saints

Elaine Woodfield is a veteran homeschooling mother and author. She is best known for her biographies of the saints.

My son LOVES all of his reading comprehension. He has learned so much about his faith and the lives of the saints just by reading and doing his daily work. We always have so much to talk about. Thank you for helping us keep the faith and help me to keep my focus on educating my son — and myself — for eternity.
Reading Comprehension: Stories of the Saints is far more than just a reading comprehension workbook. This book could be used as a unit study! Alternatively, a saint could be selected each quarter for the child to prayerfully study and to immerse themselves in the saint's life and spirituality. There are enough excellent questions in this book that a child would grow to know the saint and his surroundings on a deep level.
I believe reading all the saint stories has helped my daughter resist a lot of temptations as she is growing into a teenager.
