Sometimes the assigned monthly liturgical book is so far out of print I can’t find it.  I have about a $15 tolerance level for a “one and done” saint book, and it has to be highly recommended.   If it’s a book that will take a week or more, and it’s highly recommended, I might spend more, but many of those are up over $30 now and that makes me itch! (Hello, Catholic Stories for Boys and Girls Vol IV?  Yikes….WAIT, it’s coming back out!)  Anyway, the following books pop up in the calendar when I don’t have school, so I use them as hole-fillers during the year.

Often, there is a saint assignment and no really good material for retelling that week/day.  In those cases, we generally do a “Summer Saint” that we’ll never get to otherwise, especially if there’s an American one in there.  (I can’t bring myself to do school in the summer.)

I KNOW, right? I’m DYING for those to get here. Have you done the Tekla book before?

I have new ones coming for other months, but I didn’t put those up yet.

I’m anxious to hear what you think of the St. Audrey and St. Helena books. I haven’t heard of those books/author before, but have lots of little girls that love saint books!
