Description

In this beautifully illustrated picture book, now available for the first time in paperback, Brian Wildsmith tells the story of Mary, the mother of Jesus, in a series of wonderful scenes, framed by gold. We read the touching story of Mary's parents, Anna and Joachim, the birth and childhood of Mary, her marriage to Joseph and the visit by the angel Gabriel. We then travel with Mary to Bethlehem and witness the magic of the Nativity. We watch Jesus growing up in Nazareth and Mary's sadness as he leaves to preach the gospel. We join Mary as she is plunged into grief by the cross and then share her joy in the resurrection. Finally we see Mary's assumption into heaven.show more
