Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati
This story of Juan Diego and the Blessed Mother is a compelling one. She appears to the poor Mexican on a hill named Tepeyac outside Mexico City. She asks Diego to go to the Bishop with her mission-to build a church on the hilltop. This sturdy pop-up book details Diego's struggle to convince the Bishop that the mother of God had actually appeared to him, a lowly peasant. The Bishop finally believes Diego's message when Mary gives him a sign of her presence-a profusion of flowers blooming in January on the hillside. Diego carries the blossoms back to the Bishop in his cloak, which now has an image of Mary as she had appeared to him on Tepeyac. The Bishop fulfills the mission. He hangs Diego's cloak in the sacred house built for the Immaculate Virgin Mary of Guadalupe, which has been a place of solace and refuge since that time.
