Pictorial summary of a human St. Columba June 26 2005
By Miryam Shoresh - Published on
Format: Hardcover
There are over 6 pages to this book which gives a very human understanding of how he became a missionary to Scotland and, indeed, how much he loved books. It is filled with wonderful pictures and is appropriate for children as a learning tool for growing in integrity and righting wrongs.
Two favorites in one Oct. 15 2014
By Rachel Rossano - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As a life long fan of Jean Fritz and Trina Schart Hyman, I was delighted to find a book on which they collaborated. As usual, I was not disappointed. The delightful tale of a man obsessed with books was appropriately told in Jean Fritz's trademark manner and beautifully enhanced by Trina Schart Hyman's illustrations. This one is definitely a keeper for me.
