Religious vocations awareness through children's literature

Causing a Scene….

Molly McBride and the Purple Habit:

Volume One of the Molly McBride Series

Text and illustrations by

Jean Schoonover-Egolf

Catholic kids young and old are following the antics of the spunky 5-year-old redhead who dreams of becoming a nun when she grows up.

Molly’s momma sewed her a little purple habit to match those worn by Molly’s special friends, the Children of Mary Sisters. And now she never wants to take it off! The McBride Family normally tolerates (as well as her reluctance to go anywhere without her wolf-pet-named-Francis) Molly’s extreme aversion to other clothing. Until now.

Molly’s big sister Terry has a very, very special event coming up, and Molly is supposed to wear a fancy (and itchy) new dress that Momma bought her just for the occasion.

Will Molly find a way to wear her purple habit instead of the stiff new dress to The Big Day?  And why do nuns wear habits, anyway? To find out more, click here to order your copy of Molly McBride and the Purple Habit.

“What a wonderful book for children (and adults)! Like all the “Molly” books, Jeanie Schoonover-Egolf helps us to experience the world from a child’s point of view while transmitting critical Christian values. This book gently teaches the value of charitable love as Molly struggles to invite a hard-to-love bully in her class to her birthday party. The point is illustrated with a lovely take on several Bible stories while relating them to the everyday experience of a young child. It also highlights the stages of forming a conscience. The pen drawings on top of the watercolor illustrations are fabulous! I think this is my favorite book yet of the wonderful “Molly” series. I highly recommend this book.”

  1. This looks like an adorable story! I just sewed my daughters a dress up outfit today, and we’ll see how long it takes me to convince them to take it off. Kids love homemade dress-up 🙂 Maybe I’ll have to make them habits next! I’ve been searching for just the right fabric for Our Lady of Guadalupe outfits. We have tilmas for the boys… I’ll have to share pics of them someday 🙂

  2. I love Molly. She reminds me so much of my girls! They even have several wolf stuffies 🙂

    What a beautiful way to teach children about vocations. We’ve really enjoyed reading these books!
