This colorful and beautifully illustrated poetic retelling of Juan Diego and his miraculous vision of our Blessed Mother begins: There was once a man who lived long ago, perhaps you have heard of him: Senor Juan Diego! A maker of mats, a farmer of maize he lived in old Mexico and loved to pray! . . . He saw a bright cloud with rainbow colors streaming, for a moment he wondered, Could he just be dreaming? The cloud parted: A beautiful maiden appeared. She spoke to Juan gently; said he had nothing to fear! This charming story about Our Lady of Guadalupe is a delightful bedtime read-aloud to little ones who’ll feel comforted by the peaceful lullaby included at the story’s end.
