Tomie de Paola has been one of our favorite children's book authors since our oldest kids were toddlers.  His gift for storytelling and simple, but truly beautiful artwork have a way of bringing the reader and listener into the experiences of the characters.  You will find many of Tomie de Paola's books at your local library, but his more Catholic books are somtimes a little harder to come by.  

Mary, the Mother of Jesus by Tomie de Paola takes the reader through Mary's life, covering many of the mysteries of the rosary.  From the Presentation of the Child Mary at the Temple to the Crowning of Mary as Queen of Heaven, each event in Mary's life is given a full page of the story and large colorful picture.  

Mary, the Mother of Jesus by Tomie de Paola is hardback and 32 pages.  Recommended for ages 7 and up, but the beautiful artwork will appeal to even younger children as part of an introduction to their Catholic faith.  

From the publisher: 

The late, beloved children's book writer and illustrator Tomie dePaola said that when he was "still an art student and saw the Giotto frescoes of the life of Mary in the Arena Chapel in Padua, Italy, I knew that someday I would create his own visual version of Mary's life."

DePaola's splendid depiction of the life of Mary, the mother of Jesus, is sure to touch the heart of every child, and adult. These beautifully written and illustrated episodes draw on the Bible, Church tradition, and pious legend to present the woman chosen by God to bring the Savior into the world.

In sharing events from Mary's birth to her crowning as the Queen of Heaven, these fifteen stories will inspire a lifelong love for and devotion to Mary. They will draw children closer to her son and invite them, like Mary, to say "Yes" to the presence of Jesus in their lives.
