We have been looking for a long time for suitable reading material for children who are ready for their very first chapter book. Here are the perfect books. These wonderful Catholic readers originally published in the 1940’s through the 1960’s by Dujarie Press are now thankfully being republished by a Catholic family business! They are easy to read and are just the right size (6"x 8") to hold and finish with a real sense of accomplishment. Brother Ernest, who ran the press and wrote a majority of the stories, is a natural story teller and each story is appropriately addressed for these new readers to encourage and inspire them through these lives of "real" heroes. Our "little guys" picked them up right away and read them with interest and a desire to read them ALL. Last year we introduced the Level 1 books, which quickly became very popular. Now there are an additional 10 books in the Level 1 series covering even more favorite saints and even some lesser-known saints, such as St. Stanislaus Koska and St. Wenceslaus.
"The saints are the real heroes for today’s youth. Saints are just ordinary people with an extraordinary love for God" Any one of us could be a saint. Let's start our children on the right path!!” -Brother Roberto, CSC
