Nov. 18: Memorial of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne


Rose Philippine Duchesne: A Dreamer and  Missionary11.18 cover

by Barbara Yoffie

This book is part of Liguori Publication’s Saints and Me collection, which is a growing collection of small paperback books about saints for kids age 4-9.  The text in this book moves extremely quickly, and there are a plentiful number of pictures, so this book actually works well for age 2 and up, if not earlier.  The book tells all the basic parts of the story of St. Rose’s life, beginning with the saint’s childhood, through her life as a religious sister emigrating from France to America.  This is all presented in simplified language for the youngest children to understand and accompanied by very simplistic pictures.  Seasonal Catholic certainly recommends this book for today’s celebration.
