In her book Della of Nazareth, Sister Mary Joe C.S.N. uses the time travel theme made popular by Mary Pope Osborne in her Magic Tree House series to send eight-year-old Della to live with the Holy Family in Nazareth.
In ten stories supported by song and dance, Della experiences life with the 12-year-old Jesus. Each story ends with a moral and a prayer.
This lovely book suitable for elementary level readers from seven to nine or as a read-aloud for younger children was submitted to us by the Congregation of the Sisters of Nazareth in Kerala, India. The sisters belong to the Syro Malabar Catholic Church, one of the two Eastern Catholic liturgical traditions in India.
The book is available on Sophiabuy.com. You will find a book trailer at his link giving you a peek into the story. Unfortunately the price is only quoted in rupees. I have looked up the exchange rate and found that the entire cost for the book inclusive shipping is approximately $9.00.
If you would like to give your child a very unique book and support the work of the Sisters of Nazareth, order Della in Nazareth - all the way from India.
Thank you and God bless you!
