Introduce young readers to a saint known worldwide for his work with youth and who understood how to help children both love God and have fun, using their youthful energy for good.

About this Book:

Saint John Bosco: Champion for the Young offers a fascinating look at the life of the man who built a legacy of hope for countless children, especially those most at risk. This 34th volume of the beloved Encounter the Saints series familiarizes 8 – 12 year olds with the life story of Saint John Bosco, the founder of the Salesians, a family of men and women religious active in the apostolate of teaching and youth ministry.

At the age of nine, John Bosco had a dream that would shape the rest of his life and influence the lives of many in northern Italy. With amazing ingenuity, young John discovered new ways to help young people learn about Jesus and the Church.

As a priest, Don Bosco continued to reach out to others, especially to poor and uneducated young people. He used whatever means he had at his disposal—sports, acrobatic feats, magic tricks, kind words, a warm meal—to gather and teach the faith to young people, giving many a chance for a brighter future. For this work of education and charity to succeed, he had an extraordinary trust in God's providence and the intercession of Mary, Help of Christians. The model that Don Bosco developed for working with children and teaching them the faith was so successful it is still used today.

Reading the life of Saint John Bosco, young people will be inspired and encouraged to use their own creativity to make a difference in the world by helping others.
