Ama's Picture Books

My grandmother recently left me her entire collection of picture books and children's literature. The entire collection is comprised of over 300 books. I am attempting to read as many as possible in 2014.

The Holy Twins

The Holy Twins - Kathleen Norris, Tomie dePaola

written by Kathleen Norris, illustrated by Tomie dePaola


It's called The Holy Twins, but the book is much more about Benedict's life. I wanted more about Scholastica. The book contains interesting stories from Benedict's life. I wanted a little bit more about the order that he founded (amazing that it's still around today), but the stories presented in the book are interesting too.
