We’re planting a garden for Mary . . . but why? 

A Garden for Mary is a lyrical children’s story that gets to the root of devotion to Jesus’s mother through sacred prayer and scripture. With classic watercolors of vibrant blooms, buzzing bees, and curious chipmunks, families seeking an introduction to the rich catholic tradition of Marian Gardens will find a treasured resource to enjoy and pass down from generation to generation.

Complete with an illustrated appendix of flowers associated with Our Lady, A Garden for Mary will inspire readers to grow bouquets for heaven and deepen their love for our heavenly mother.

Editorial Reviews

Claudia Cangilla McAdam (Author of “E” is for Eucharist: A Catholic ABC)

"Ingenious! In her book, A Garden for Mary, Neena Gaynor follows a family planting a garden in honor of the Virgin Mary. The author uses her horticultural expertise and her knowledge of the history of Marian gardens to sow seeds of devotion to our Blessed Mother into the hearts of young children. Bernadette Gockowski’s soft illustrations gladden the spirit and appeal to the senses. A beautiful and touching way to encourage the faith to blossom!"

Fr. Ken Geraci, CPM ( Fathers of Mercy, TAN Author of “Why Be Catholic?”)

“A Garden for Mary is an endearing and heartfelt message of the Love of God. The words of the book take us up to Jesus through Mary; while the illustrations brings us Jesus through Mary. Rich in love and devotion, this book will be a family favorite for generations to come.”
