Marianne Lorraine Trouve has written a new book for the Encounter the Saints Series covering the life of Saint Catherine Laboure. As with the other books in this series, this biography is written at a level that is perfect for children in the 8-10 year-old range. The story is told in fairly simple terms while managing to give a decent amount of detail. A glossary is also included in the back of the book to explain terms in the book that may be new to the reader.
I found this book to be a quick simple read. The story was engaging without being overwhelming. Even though it is written for youth, I found that there were a few details in the story that were new to me. This book is a wonderful way to introduce your child to the story behind the miraculous medal.
