Here's an excellent introduction for school-age children to the saints whose feast days are celebrated throughout the liturgical year. The book is written in vocabulary children will understand, but it in no sense "talks down" or "makes cute" with the narrative. Fr Hoagland has a good sense of how to write for a broad audience and these brief histories hit just the right note for those who are beginning to learn about saints -- whether as patrons, as individuals whose feasts we remember throughout the year, or as examples to apply to daily life.
That the book is organized according to the calendar makes it a nifty resource for families who want to acquaint children with the saints of the church year. The book encourages further exploration of saints' lives. Thus, I have used it repeatedly as a gift for First Communions and even, when appropriate, for Confirmations.
