Initially written for children with the endearing subtitle of “For Children and the Childlike” this enchanting story of the life of Saint Thomas Aquinas was originally published in 1935. It couldn’t have been long before readers discovered its appeal for all ages. The author’s fondness and respect for this saint shines through her warm, conversational writing, as does her love of Christ and the joy her adopted faith brings. Sweet illustrations in pencil mark the beginning of each chapter.

This is a must-have for your Catholic library! Enjoy it as a read-aloud with youngsters 8+ and offer it to your teens too!
Paperback, 114 pages, 5.5” x 8.5”.

Because he was big and strong and sometimes slow to speak, Thomas Aquinas’s schoolmates called him the Dumb Ox. Not long afterward, he came to be called Doctor (which means “teacher”) because he could actually understand complicated things quickly and explain them well. Today the Church Herself calls Saint Thomas Aquinas the Angelic Doctor, “the teacher who is like an angle”; pure, strong, close to God, and truly a messenger of divine light.
St. Thomas Aquinas' feast day is January 28th.
He is the patron of Catholic Schools and, as the author says, “all those, young and old, who love the truth with their whole hearts, and who wish to know and serve it well.’’
