Gifts of Our Lady of Guadalupe: Patroness of Latin America

We rated this book:


Gifts of Our Lady of Guadalupe: Patroness of Latin America is a wonderful introduction on the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe. This picture book begins with a very brief introduction into the beginnings of Catholicism in Mexico, dating back to 1519 A.D. Next comes the famous story of a poor farmer named Juan Diego, who encounters a visitation of Mary, the mother of Jesus, on his way to church.

This beautiful story is accented with vibrantly colored illustrations that both invoke the spirit of Mexican artwork and the brilliant radiance of the Lady described in Diego’s encounter. The entire page is deeply saturated with bright colors of yellow, red, pink, and blue.

The story itself is a simple retelling of the events of Our Lady of Guadalupe. There is a two-page spread at the end of the book with a photo of the actual tilma with the image of Our Lady on it and a list of ten facts about the encounter. Catholic families will be the primary audience of this fine-quality book.
