Mary, the Mother of Jesus (Our Lady)
The month of May has been dedicated to Mary since the 13th century. No one could be a better exemplify our May virtues of hope and joy than Our Lady, the composer of the Magnificat and the bearer of the greatest hope the world has ever known. May, full of the warmth and joys of spring, is also the perfect month for introducing children to Mary's gentleness and love for them.
The books below are introductions to Mary for younger and older children, but they are, of course, just scratching the surface.
