Our Lady’s Wardrobe

About this item

This delightful rhyming book introduces Catholic children to the Blessed Virgin Mary in a fun and simple way—through her clothes!

When Our Lady lived in Nazareth two thousand years ago, she was very poor and probably didn’t have many nice things to wear. But now that she’s in Heaven, she has an enormous mansion. And in that mansion she has an incredibly beautiful wardrobe filled with a great variety of dresses, veils, slippers, sashes, robes, rings and crowns.

Over the centuries, Our Lady has visited the people of Earth many times. On each of these occasions she has dressed very differently. Our Lady’s Wardrobe tells the story of some of her most famous apparitions, highlighting the clothes she wore and the things she did.

By reading this book, children will not only learn about the Mother of God, but will also learn the main purpose of her life—to love and serve her son, Jesus Christ, and to lead others to do the same.

"Kimberly and I recommend this new book as a beautiful and effective way to introduce your children and grandchildren to the Blessed Virgin Mary, especially through her most important apparitions: Guadalupe, Fatima, Lourdes, Knock and more. We congratulate the author, Anthony DeStefano, and the gifted illustrator, Juliana Kolesova, for this marvelous book - deservedly a children’s classic."

"What a clever way to teach children about the Blessed Virgin’s role and her most famous apparitions! 'Our Lady’s Wardrobe' has got to be one of the most beautiful children’s books that I have ever seen! Its charming and purposeful rhyming amid stunning illustrations will captivate not only the children’s hearts, but the hearts of the adults who read to them. I highly recommend this book!"

A SPECIAL BOOK ON MARY LIKE NO OTHER
THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN'S BOOK I THINK I HAVE EVER SEEN. THE THEME THROUGH WHICH MARY IS INTRODUCED HER WARDROBE IS SO CREATIVE. I HAVE TAUGHT PRIMARY GRADE CHILDREN AND ADULTS SO I THINK IT CAN INSPIRE A LOVE FOR MARY IN THE HEARTS OF CHILDREN AND IN THOSE WHO ARE YOUNG AT HEART.

Disappointing
This is a wonderful concept, but I am very disappointed to see the Euro-centric and historically inaccurate illustrations in this day and age. Mary of Nazareth was not white. Nor was Juan Diego, an indigenous Mexican. It would be wonderful to see a similar book that reflects both the historical reality that Mary was a middle-Eastern woman AND the wonderful diversity of our Church and the various Marian apparitions.

Captivating and Enticing for All Involved
The images contained in this book captivated the imagination of my four year old, the attention of the baby, and helped spark conversation of Our Lady and her many apparitions with my seven year old. The language was easy to read, poetic, and engaging for all readers - from adults to small children.
