In this charming sequel to his bestselling book, Our Lady's Wardrobe, Anthony DeStefano introduces Catholic children to more well-known images of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Only this time, he doesn't use Our Lady's clothes to teach children about the Mother of God, but rather, he gives kids a peek into her own personal picture book.

Over the centuries, Our Lady has been the subject of thousands of works of art that depict her as an advocate of sinners, a protector from harm, and a powerful intercessor with her Son. Our Lady's Picture Book highlights Mary's unique role in salvation history by explaining some of her most famous titles of honor, including: Our Lady of Sorrows, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Our Lady of Loreto, Our Lady of the Assumption, Our Lady, Star of the Sea, Our Lady of the Rosary, Our Lady, Mother of Mercy, Our Lady, Queen of Peace, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

When children read this book, they will not only be captivated by its exquisite images, but will also learn to ask Our Lady to intercede for them with Jesus at all times and in all circumstances. Indeed, Our Lady's Picture Book is actually a beautiful, book-length prayer to the Mother of God. Together with Our Lady's Wardrobe, it will give children a magnificent yet simple introduction to the main purpose of Mary's life to love and serve Jesus Christ and to lead others to do the same.

It’s a message sure to resonate with the children who hear the story and the adults who read it to them. Christians looking for an Easter story that goes beyond chocolate bunnies and dyed eggs will be thrilled when they open this classic tale by Anthony DeStefano.

DeStefano finds a fresh take on the events that lead to Easter. Using a small scriptural reference to the unridden donkey that Jesus rides in triumph into Jerusalem, DeStefano imagines a transformative relationship between a small, weak donkey and a figure who gives him strength and asks him to have faith. The text’s rhymes (“No matter how much he tried or he cried/ This was a donkey no one could ride”) make for easy read-aloud. Cowdrey’s illustrations focus on the donkey, conveying the development from initial lethargy to the donkey’s energetic and confident strength. It’s a welcome change from Easter chicks and bunnies. Ages 5–up. - Publishers Weekly
