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.
In this beautiful illustrated children's book for ages 5 and up, best-selling author Anthony DeStefano introduces children to Marian apparitions and the diverse, dazzling styles of dress Mary wears whenever she appears. By means of these wise pages and their delightful images, children come to understand the main lesson of Mary's whole life -- the need to do whatever her son Jesus tells us to do.

Story & Symbolism:
Over the centuries, Our Lady has appeared at many different times and in many different places, but few realize that she almost always appears in quite diverse and dazzling styles of dress.
In these stunningly beautiful pages, best-selling children's author Anthony DeStefano considers Mary's distinctive raiment in the various apparitions and elucidates the message she bears in each. By means of these wise pages and their delightful images, children come to understand the main lesson of Mary's whole life -- the need to do whatever her son Jesus tells us to do.
First, children meet Our Lady in Nazareth, poor and therefore not robed in splendor. Next, they encounter her in Heaven, dwelling in an enormous mansion (as is promised by Jesus to all who live there) with an exquisitely beautiful wardrobe. DeStefano engages young readers in consideration of fifteen exterior garments of Our Lady, thereby leading young souls directly into the interior messages of her Immaculate Heart.
