Author:  Maggie Jetty
Publisher:  Caritas Press

Get to know the fascinating story behind 36 Holy Saints in Encyclopedia of Peg Saints. Popular among homeschoolers, peg saints are a delightful and crafty way for kids to create wooden peg doll versions of their favorite saints.

Much like the Lego Minifigures Character Encyclopedia, each page of this book features a peg doll saint, a short summary of their life and fun facts--ranging from nicknames to descriptions of their clothing.

Encyclopedia of Peg Saints is the perfect book for those who already collect peg saints or those who want to give it a try! Even if you are not interested in crafts, this book is a fun and engaging way to learn more about the saints!

"I think this book will be what finally pushes us onto the Peg Saint Exchange bandwagon. [My daughter,] Betty is really excited to do one with our Little Flowers group. "

"It is hard to find a book about the saints that is on the right level to teach kids quickly about these heros of our faith. Encyclopedia of Peg Saints does a great job.... If you are looking for a book to use in a religion class or with homeschoolers to teach about a variety of saints, I think you'll find this one to be very useful."
