Marie Catherine Sophie deFlavigny - PB - 248 pages
The Countess deFlavigny wrote this series of short meditative stories to read to her children and grandchildren. They are designed to implant in the receptive minds of young children a love of their faith and a knowledge of their duties. The readings are intended to be read each week, probably on Sunday, and they embrace simple and familiar lessons for children on the ordinary duties and on those common Christian virtues that cannot be instilled too early into the hearts of God's little ones. The stories can easily keep the attention of little children and even older children will appreciate the explanations and lessons offerred.
