Saints are real-life heroes and heroines of faith who inspire us by their virtues to become more like Christ. In this series of beautifully illustrated early reader books, these real stories come to life and connect with a today’s children, ages 4 to 9. Thérèse of Lisieux learned about love from her family. A Carmelite nun, she developed a “little way” of doing small things out of love for God. Her vocation was love. Her feast day is celebrated on October 1st. She is the patron saint of aviators, florists and foreign missions.
