A book review on Anthony DeStefano's new release, Our Lady's Wardrobe.

by Rosa Sautner, Catholic homeschooling mother of 2.

This beautiful book is a unique perspective of Marian apparitions written for children.  Anthony DeStefano's charming poetic verses and Juliana Kolesova's stunning illustrations combine to produce an exquisite picture book.

The beauty of this book is only the beginning.  What this lovely book teaches is real virtue.  Our Blessed Mother was poor on this earth and dressed simply.  Now in the splendor of Heaven, she is arrayed in the most magnificent of costumes.  At each apparition she comes splendidly dressed.

But that is not all!  What this beautiful picture book will teach girls and boys alike is modesty!  Our Lady always appeared in dresses;  long beautiful gowns that covered her from head to foot and made her look even more resplendent.

This book is a real treasure and a starting point for many conversations with children about the love of our Blessed Mother, about her exquisite beauty, her sweet and pure modesty and her promise of a Heavenly Home to come.
