I love to stumble across a good children’s book. All my boys are teens, but I still have shelves and shelves of children’s books. Since I don’t have any girls of my own to share this with, I am sharing it with everyone who reads my blog!
Molly McBride and the Purple Habit is a fun book for Catholic girls, and a wonderful birthday or First Communion gift!
“Catholic kids young and old are following the antics of the precocious 5-year-old redhead who dreams of becoming a nun when she grows up.”
Molly McBride wants to be a nun, just like her friends, the Children of Mary Sisters. That’s why she hasn’t taken off her purple nun’s habit ever since her mom made it for her. But now, everyone is saying she needs to wear a scratchy new dress for her older sister Terry’s Big Event. Will Molly and her wolf-pet, Francis, find a way to keep wearing her purple habit? Join Molly and Francis as they learn all about nuns, habits, and being close to Jesus.
Reviews I found on Amazon:
“A lovely story with beautiful artwork.”
“Nice way to teach about those called to religious life.”
“The story line is adorable and educates little ones (and curious adults!) about cloistered nuns and their habits, while explaining the Catholic meaning of First Communion.”
“This book is pure delight! The sweet, spunky Molly and her stuffed pet Francis captured my heart in this lovely story for children about the beauty of Catholic sacraments.“
