With the confidence of a master storyteller practiced in holding the attention of even the most restless child, the author weaves tales of Noah and Moses, Solomon and David, and Daniel in the lionís den. She leads young listeners to marvel at prophesies of the coming Savior, to be charmed by the gentle goodness of His boyhood, and be dazzled by the scores of miracles that proved He is the Messiah coming to save Israel Ö and to save, as well, every little child who hears these stories! Continuing with stories about events after the Resurrection, the author takes young readers along with Peter, Paul, and the Apostles as they carry the Good News to the ends of the Earth, and even gives them a glimpse, with St. John, of the marvels promised for the end of time!
These stories are suited to the understanding of young children and proportioned to the immense powers of imagination in little children, leaving them able and willing to believe in the truth of good things, and in marvels they may not yet understand.
