Seton's Description:
New! The Story of Saint John Bosco - He was born in 1815 in Italy and while growing up, he loved to do various tricks, juggling and accomplishing special athletic feats. He unofficially became the village “entertainer”. John took a special interest in organizing the “rough” young boys of the town. He showed them tricks and played sports games with them, but he would always take a little time to teach them some catechism lessons and lead them in prayer. He became their hero. While working his way through school, he also learned to be a baker, a tailor, a carpenter and an iron-worker.
He used these skills after he joined the seminary by starting a very successful school for boys. Finally, after meeting with the Pope Pius IX he received permission to start a new community and seminary known as the Salesian Society. He also started a community of Sisters.
Encourage children to learn from the best examples - the saints! A good "Beginning Reader" for those just learning to read. Hardcover. 6.5 x 8.5 in. Recommended Grades K-5. 32 pp.
