The Little Flower is the enchanting story of St. Therese of the Child Jesus, a girl who turned into an inspiring and beloved Catholic saint. The book follows her journey, from losing her first mother to finding solace in a new one; from being teased in school to making a miraculous recovery from illness; from first Holy Communion to winning back a criminal's soul for God. It illustrates how Therese found faith and grace, discovering what she wanted to do with her life when she grew up: becoming a saint who changed communities around the world.
This lovely children’s book tells this incredible story in an entertaining and informative way that will capture your kid’s imagination yet never compromise on educational value. The artwork breathes life into each ordinary moment whilst laying out a moral lesson, all accompanied by carefully selected text that brings out deliciously rich detail about events of significance during Therese’s life.
