The Read-Aloud Book of Saints

K.M. Lucchese

Aug/2008, 304 Pages, Paperback, 8.5 x 11

ISBN-13: 9780819222893



The lives of the saints are either too grisly for little kids or too saccharine for older ones. But this collection appeals to both groups with a combination of gentle humor and frankness – battle-tested at the author’s weekly chapel services at the school where she teaches.

It’s organized into two full school years, with each saint’s story falling on or near his or her special day so that each story can be a springboard to a creative seasonal teaching unit or small festival. Saints represent a wide variety of ethnic and geographic backgrounds.

K. M. Lucchese, who holds a doctorate in cultural geography, is a history and Latin teacher and assistant chaplain at St. Michael's Episcopal School in Bryan, Texas. She lives in College Station, Texas.
