About this Book:

This story of Mary, Our Blessed Mother, is ideal for children ages 7 to 9. Drawn from the Bible and traditional stories, its colorful pages, which include anecdotes about Mary's early life, her role as Jesus' mother, her assumption into heaven, and her miraculous appearances on earth, will delight young readers. Children will grow to appreciate more about Mary as a person and as the mother of Christ and the Church. Written specifically for the intermediate age group, children in grades 2 through 4 will find these important stories for their faith formation engaging and accessible.

Our Blessed Mother portrays Mary in her youth and later as a mother, an effective way to both help children contextualize Mary's story and connect their own everyday life and family situations to Our Lady's. This greater understanding will help in forming a foundation for a devotion to Mary that can last a lifetime. The book also uses pivotal scenes from the Bible to show the influence Mary had in her son's life and ministry. This will help children in their love and appreciation of scripture.

The book acts as an approachable biography of one of the most important figures in Catholicism, allowing children to learn in a fun and engaging way all about Mary's life and apparitions. Beautiful illustrations by artist and singer Sr. Julia Mary Darrenkamp, FSP enhance each story and bring Mary's narrative to life.

Katherine Bogner says...
Pauline Books & Media provided me with a copy of Our Blessed Mother: The Story of Mary for Children in exchange for an honest review. This sweet but solid book about Mary is beautifully illustrated and filled with the story of the Blessed Virgin Marys life, based on Scripture and Tradition. Organized in chapters and over sixty pages long, this brand new book fills a need for content about Our Lady for older elementary students. Many picture books are written at a lower level and have smaller snippets of information. I love that this book has more substantial information while still being illustrated and attainable. Along with stories of Marys life, also included are summaries of several Marian apparitions and information about how to pray the Rosary.
