"Pray and hope. God is merciful and He will hear your prayer."--Padre Pio Reading Level: To be read with children at 5 years old. To be read independently at 8 years and up. Review and Comments: As All Saint's Day approaches, we are reminded of the great opportunity to learn about all of the holy men and women who have modeled their lives after Christ and show us the amazing possibilities in store when we do the same. The really amazing part is that there are all different kinds of saints. Saints who lived quietly, saints who were martyred, and saints who fought in wars are all with Jesus. They simply listened to His call. My hope is that my young children will find friends in the saints as I did growing up. This is why I am so glad to have found the CTS Children's Book series on saints for kids. Padre Pio has always been one of my favorite saints and so I was automatically drawn to his story first. I find his life fascinating and after watching a movie about his life, I have attempted to learn more about him. His life was miraculous and this book shares his story so that younger children can learn about him. The book begins with telling us about Padre Pio's childhood and continues through his answering his vocation. It shares his difficult fight with illness, his gift of the stigmata, and finishes with the legacy he left behind. What I appreciate most about this biography for children, is that it chooses the most important parts of his life to share with young children and is written in a way that will appeal to them. Each page is colored in beautifully illustrated pictures that make the pages so fun to look…read-more
