The book for the Saint Picture Book Club for September is from a legendary author illustrator of children’s biographies — Demi. I have seen her books pop up on MANY a recommended reading list, but this is the first I have purchased. I was not disappointed!
The September saint is St. Mother Teresa and her feast day is September 5. The book I am featuring is recommended for ages 7-10 and is simply called Mother Teresa. You could probably go down a little bit — I plan on sharing with my not-quite-5-year-old and my 7.5 year old and I think they will like it just fine.
As usual, it is an easily available picture book, eligible for Amazon Prime. I was totally on top of this so I bought a used hardcover, but you can get it in paperback on Prime. The pictures are lovely and the text is engaging; I’m looking forward to sharing it with my girls!
Come back next week for a full review of the book, activities and recipes related to the life of St. Mother Teresa!
