About this Book:
Kids love comics and the lives of saints come to life in a new way when we can color in comic strips of their lives. In this Comicolor Saints book, simple coloring pages come to life with the story of Kateri's exciting life. Born in 1656 in the village of Ossernonen (now Auriesville, New York), she was named Ioragode, which means Sunshine. In time her mother who was Christian shared her faith with Ioragode. Her happiness ended when her mother, father, and brother were killed by smallpox. As Kateri grew, her love for God grew also, although she knew so little about him. Eventually she was baptized and when no one in the village understood her desire to serve God alone she escaped for the Christian village with two Indian braves. There she was able to live the life she desired. Children who color and read Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha will be attracted by the beauty, courage, and genuineness of this young Indian girl. This coloring book also features cut-out trading cards, activities, and games. Ideal for ages 6—8.
