Children's Book Suggestion

Julia Durango, author of The Walls of Cartagena, also wrote a wonderful description of the life of Saint Peter Claver. If you recall my May 21, 2009, post, you will remember that Peter Claver called himself a "slave of the black slaves". He loved and served the newly arrived slaves in Cartagena in the 1600's. You and your child can learn more as you enjoy this wonderful bilingual (SPANISH/ENGLISH) book. It is called:

Peter Claver, Patron Saint of Slaves/Pedro Claver, Santo Patrono de los Esclavos

This book would be a great addition to your home library. It is especially great for kids 4-8 years of age.
