The Monks' Stormy Night

(5 reviews) Write a Review
The monks of Archangel Monastery are prepared for a hard winter. But look out, monks! A bad winter storm is coming!

This beautifully illustrated book will be enjoyed by children and their caregivers for its humorous pictures, for fun rhymes reminiscent of Dr. Seuss, and for the heartfelt message of sincere trust in the Lord's providence.

    Funny, but serious

    This is the second of the books about Archangel Monastery. It is written in the same simple rhyme as the first, with the same simple illustrations. This book was the most requested from our granddaughter, and some of the phrases stuck in my head still make me laugh. The monks begin with not a care in the world. Then one catastrophe after another happens. Father Abbot encourages the monks to remember that God is with them through it all.

    A Cute Story about trust in Jesus

    Posted by Jordan on May 24th 2023

    This simple story of a group of religious brothers surviving a stormy night with a broken furnace, flooded basement, and other such maladies, is an engaging lesson for children in trusting God and finding Him close in times of trouble. It is a simple story with a profound message. We enjoy the colorful illustrations and rhythmic verse.

    I truly recommend this book for small children who like to see illustrations for what is read to them. The writing of this book is catchy because it is written in rhymes. Its short and yet it has the lessons of several virtues that children will enjoy learning about . I found it amusing , colorful and enjoyable. The size is perfect for small hands and the colorful illustrations will keep the child entertained and an older child will enjoy it just as well. Also, the fact that it is part of a series makes it even more appealing .

    My kids love it!

    I have 5 kids ages 2-11 and they all enjoy this book. My readers will read it to themselves and my non-readers ask to have it read to them often. We also have the first book in the series and they enjoy it as well. Its a wonderful message told with an easy to read rhyme. I also like the Bible verse at the end that can be memorized and pertains to the lesson in the story.
