Mary: The Mother of Jesus is my favorite book by Tomie de Paola. De Paola chronicles Mary's life from before her conception to her becoming Queen of Heaven. He uses quotes from the antiphons and the Bible to tell this beautiful story. In doing so, he brings greater glory to God the Son ("to Jesus through Mary"). My three and five year old sit in rapt attention, looking at the pictures, each time I read the book.
