Description

The first accounts of Mary, mother of Jesus, are found in the Bible. These scattered references have been woven together to tell one great story: of the woman whose faith in God brought her both immense joy and deepest sorrow, and who remained steadfast in her loyalty to her son. This is a timeless tale, simply and charmingly retold for children, with an enduring message of love. "The parts of the story of Jesus' life which his mother, Mary, was involved in, are told in an unusual way in this lovely picture book...very beautifully illustrated in a style reminiscent of medieval Church art...a lovely resource for use in primary school..."
