We’re planting a garden for Mary . . . but why?
A Garden for Mary is a lyrical children’s story that gets to the root of devotion to Jesus’s mother through sacred prayer and scripture. With classic watercolors of vibrant blooms, buzzing bees, and curious chipmunks, families seeking an introduction to the rich catholic tradition of Marian Gardens will find a treasured resource to enjoy and pass down from generation to generation.
Complete with an illustrated appendix of flowers associated with Our Lady, A Garden for Mary will inspire readers to grow bouquets for heaven and deepen their love for our heavenly mother.

The illustrations of this book are so beautiful, and the story is perfect to read to little ones! I love the inclusion of traditional flowers used for our Blessed Mother.
This book is beautifully illustrated and teaches children about planting a garden for our Blessed Mother in a very relatable storytelling for kids. I love that it incorporates the Hail Mary into the book as well! My kids were glued to the story from beginning to end. Highly recommend this book as a great addition to a young Catholic readers library!
I was so excited to win this book at a silent auction, along with an indoor Mary Garden kit! It is lovely. My children really enjoy reading it! The colors are beautiful, and the words are soft and sweet- just right. It captures the beauty of these gardens well... now if I could just keep my plants alive...! Great job, ladies putting this together.
Love this book especially the art! Amazing book for kids to enter more fully into their faith!! Thanks to the author and illustrator who made such a lovely addition to our growing family library.
Our Mother Mary is so greatly honored in this book! It inspires wonder and awe that opens new insights to gardening as a gift. A gift to be received, given, and shared, for the honor and glory of God. I gave this book to my grandchildren last week and within two days received a text with pictures: See our Mary Garden Grandma!ù They were so excited to show me. We pray through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother many abundant graces will be poured out upon all who seek to embark upon the physical and the spiritual adventure of building a Mary Garden through reading this book. It is a book for any family seeking holiness.
This was such a sweet book and the artwork is beautiful. I really like buying Catholic books that have unique topics and I'venever seen one before the discussed Mary gardens.
My 22-month-old son loves reading about Nannyù (Mary). This has been a great edition to help teach him the role the Blessed Virgin plays in our salvation. Brightly colored pages with kids and animals keep his attention the whole way through!
