Molly McBride and the Purple Habit Reviews
Molly McBride and the Purple Habit, by Jean Schoonover-Egolf is the first in a series of charming books about a five-year-old girl, named Molly McBride. Molly loves imitating the Children of Mary Sisters, by wearing their purple habit, specially crafted, for her, by her mom. She loves it so much, that she wants to wear it to her big sister’s First Communion! Why can’t she, when the Children of Mary Sisters will be there, and they will be wearing their purple habits. Oh, can you imagine the havoc that would ensue in dealing with that on such a busy morning? You’ll need to read the story to see whether Molly gets her way.The character of Molly is strong in her faith in Jesus. At five years-old, Molly is well aware of who Jesus is, and what type of relationship she wants to have with Him throughout her life. I love this character, who comes across the page, filled with conviction! Molly McBride is a great role model for any child learning to grow in faith.I highly recommend this book for any child between the ages of 5-8.
I read all three "Molly" books at the same time. It's a fun, sweet series filled with virtue and simple lessons about the Catholic faith to inspire young readers. Jean Egolf is equally talented at writing and illustration. Good books for parents/ grandparents to share with their children to spark conversations about vocations, sacraments, attending school, bullies, and more.
Pure delight! Molly and her stuffed pet Francis captured my heart in this lovely children's story about the beauty of Catholic sacraments.
