The brand-new children’s book by Mother Clare Matthiass, CFR, perfect for story time on the “Religious Life” day! Mother Clare is on a mission to introduce religious life to Catholic kids who may have never even seen a sister—and to do so with humor, verve, and imaginative story-telling.
The Unsolvable Problem introduces kids to Sr. Mary Andy and her lovable convent of sisters, who encounter a big dilemma as they plan a patriotic picnic for the poor. Along the way, kids will learn about convent life, little prayers to Jesus, why to obey the convent bells, and what do with they encounter life’s problems, big and small.
Based on an amazing true story that happened in New York City just before the Fourth of July. Illustrated by famed Catholic children’s book artist Michael Corsini, whose hand-painted style perfectly captures the emotions of the sisters and the beautiful spirit of their Little Convent in the Big City. Softcover.
