In rural Italy of the 1800's not many kids went to school, or even thought about it. But little Boschetto couldn't stop thinking about it after his dream of "a glorious man" who appeared asking him to "tame the wild children in your yard." This request made sense to him because the local boys were forever getting into brawls, but the boy wondered how he could ever achieve such a feat. The Son of Heaven explained that in order to grow wise Boschetto must follow the guidance of the lady he would send, "All it takes is obedience and study." Bright watercolor vignettes illustrate John's heroic struggles to overcome the death of his father at an early age, poverty, a bullying older brother and self-doubt to make his dream come true. See how John Bosco became a dynamic champion for poor and homeless youth through the power of prayer and perseverance, and why today, 100 years later, the life of the Patron Saint of Youth still serves as an excellent role model for all…just listen to the dream God plants within your heart. Ages 5-8. Softcover, 32 pages, 11" x 8 1/2".
