In The Footsteps of the Saints Series

1911By Brother Ernest, C.S.C. 

We have been looking for a long time for suitable reading material for children who are ready for their very first chapter book.  Here are the perfect books.  These wonderful Catholic readers originally published in the 1940’s through the 1960’s by Dujarie Press are now thankfully being republished by a Catholic family business!  They are easy to read and are just the right size (6”x 8”) to hold and finish with a real sense of accomplishment.  Brother Ernest, who ran the press and wrote a majority of the stories, is a natural story teller and each story is appropriately addressed for these new readers to encourage and inspire them through these lives of “real” heroes.  Our “little guys” picked them up right away and read them with interest and took them to Adoration to help them meditate on these holy men and women.
