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. The Little Flower provides an inspiring experience for young minds about trust, prayer and perseverance—and shows how one person can make such meaningful impacts on our world without ever leaving their own home!

Mary Fabyan Windeatt:

Mary Fabyan Windeatt lived from 1910-1979 and grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada. The Mount Saint Vincent College awarded her a Licentiate of Music degree when she was just seventeen, and she began writing Catholic works when she was about twenty-four. Later she sent one of her stories to a Catholic magazine, and after it was accepted, she continued to write. In total she composed at least twenty-one children's books, as well as periodical children's pages written for The Torch, a monthly Dominican magazine. Mary Windeatt is most renowned for her many novels of the saints, which she wrote specifically for children, including lives on the Children of Fatima, Cure of Ars, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Rose of Lima and many others.
