Saint Felix and the Spider...
Two of our favorite topics in this house are saints and animals. Often our days are filled with books, artwork, television shows, and little outings that reflect these two interests of the little people in our house. Therefore we were delighted to receive a package from Dessi Jackson containing her latest book, Saint Felix and the Spider!
What a delightful story! Mrs. Jackson weaves the tale of Saint Felix and his little spider friend, Fedelis, in a way that captivates both young and old alike. We all loved the gentle style the author employed to tell the story of the spider that saved Saint Felix from persecution by hiding him with her web. It was a joy to read this children's book!
The pictures in this volume are delightful. Lydia Grace Kadar-Kallen is a first time children's book illustrator and I predict that many more authors will commission her work for their books. The illustrations are colorful, vibrant, and exacting. Our little ones poured over the pictures long after the story was over looking at every little detail.
With the Christmas season upon us, consider adding Saint Felix and the Spider to your shopping lists for the children in your life. This story will be enjoyed by your favorite little ones for years to come!
