The Little Flower: The Story of St. Therese of the Child Jesus teaches the inspiring story of little Therese Martin, who hit upon a plan for becoming a saint when she decided to love God every minute and say “yes” to whatever He asked of her. With this plan for sainthood, St. Therese became one of the best known and most loved saints. Her “Little Way” shows that what God asks of us is simple: to love Him in all that we do. The example of St. Therese will be an inspiration to you and your student!

Religious in the South
My daughter loved this book. Living in the South, we do not have much contact with religious, but she was telling me just the other day about Therese;s difficulties entering Carmel and that she was surprised that she would be admitted at such a young age. Maybe it wasn;t those words specifically, but the ideas were there. My daughter is an avid reader, and she really enjoyed this book.
