This book is a collection of stories of the women saints and martyrs of the early Christian Church. Featuring saints venerated in both Orthodox and Catholic traditions, this book will introduce children to amazing role models of the faith. Showcasing women who were light in a dark time, these stories are filled with courage, beauty and ultimately, a faith in God that transformed the world.
Each saint is featured with a stunning watercolor portrait, a short story from her life and a prayer suitable for young children. Example: O Saint Dymphna, you healed many bodies and minds.
Comfort me when I am worried. Calm my mind when I am afraid.

All children in Key Stage 1 have daily phonics sessions, beginning with simple sounds and building up to more complex sound combinations. This is essential for reading, but it also helps children to learn to spell well.
We teach the children simple ways of remembering these sounds and letters. The teachers read to the children, too, so the children get to know all sorts of stories, poetry and information books. They learn many more words this way and it also helps their writing. What can I do to help?
