Sister Lucy's Great Big Family

by Susie Poole


Large paperback
Price: £5.99
Publisher:Authentic Media
Published:February 2013
No matter how old you are you will find this book enchanting and a delight to read. Whether you are a parent looking for a new book to read with your child, a teacher looking for a new discussion point or a pastoral leader looking to teach children about missionary work then this is the book for you.

Based on the real Sister Lucy in Kenya the story takes you on a journey of love, both God's and Sister Lucy's and the power that we have with God's help to make a difference. Written in such a way as to engage young children and adults equally it teaches without preaching or lecturing.

The illustrations tell their own narrative, providing beautiful talking points as well as colourful images to capture the imagination whilst providing further information on the life of this special great big family.

The appeal of this book spans the generations and provides untold teaching opportunities. This really is in my opinion a must have book, no matter how old you are.
