A very very good St. Elizabeth Ann Seton children's book
I know it was hard to realize today was St. Elizabeth's feast day with the Epiphany and all, but I thought I would share a really good children's book with a pretty detailed story about her childhood and adulthood and her children.
It's the second volume of Catholic Stories for Boys and Girls by Neumann Press- it was light blue in color but I am not sure what color Volume II is being published in now.
It has a story about her growing up and the war with the British and America becoming independent. She met the great General Washington. There is a story that details her daughter Anina who also became a sister and more info about their trip to Italy. She really endured a lot of hardships- not just physical but extreme emotional (at least they would be extremely emotional for me!)
It was very good and it kept my 4 and 6 year old captivated. We are in the process of re-reading it.
