Become a Catholic hero by training with the saints!

About this Book:

What if you could be a superhero with superpowers? How to Be a Hero: Train with the Saints explores the saints' superpowers (better known as virtues!). With stories illustrating cardinal, theological, and "little" virtues, this comprehensive Catholic virtue training will help children ages 9 to 11 build a strong faith that will last a lifetime.

Using a snapshot from the saint's life exemplifying the virtue, each short vignette includes a Bible verse, virtue definition, story, questions for reflection, and an original prayer to help children develop the specific virtue.

Saints and other holy Catholics in this book include Saint Joan of Arc, Venerable Matt Talbot, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, Pope John Paul II, Saint Monica, Saint Josephine Bakhita, the shepherds at Fatima, Saint Charbel Makhlouf, Blessed Dina Belanger, Blessed Chiara Luce Badano, Saint Peter Yu Tae-chol and Saint Agatha Yi.

Features & Benefits:

  • Introduces and defines cardinal, theological and "little" virtues
  • Discussion questions for each virtue
  • Original prayer for each virtue
  • Begins each virtue story with a Bible verse
  • Features biographical information for each saint

What Are People Saying about this Title?

I'm grateful to be able to add this to my classroom library for continued lessons in virtue and devotion to the Saints, and I think it would make a great addition to your home or classroom, especially as a read-aloud and a resource for great virtue related discussion starters.
-Katie Bogner, Look to Him and Be Radiant Blog

The language is plain and frank, and the ideas are much more challenging than you normally see in a religion book for kids.
-Simcha Fisher, Catholic blogger and writer
