The Three Sunflowers~Los Tres Girasoles~ Children's Bilingual Book Signing and Celebration of La Virgen de Guadalupe

Dec 12 2017 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Dear Friends, Due to the Thomas Fire in our area, we are rescheduling the Booksigning and Celebration for Tuesday, December 12. Our greatest wish is that you all stay safe and healthy tonight and in the days to come. Prayers and milagros for all! December 12 is La Virgen de Guadalupe’s holy day, and we trust the skies will be clear and stars shining bright!

The Three Sunflowers ~ Los Tres Girasolesis the new bilingual version of the award-winning children’s book, The Three Sunflowers.

The first 25 customers receive a Guadalupe prayer card with original illustration. Milagro offerings available to all.

The Three Sunflowers ~ Los Tres Girasoles tells of a turbulent day in the garden where a trio of sunflowers — the tall, wise Gloria and young Florecita and Solecito — face unexpected and chaotic events they have no power to prevent. Through it all, Gloria guides and reassures the youngsters and reminds them of the nature and purpose of a sunflower’s life, “We are sunflowers, golden and radiant. Our job is to be loving and peaceful wherever we stand.” After a dark night of uncertainty, the story concludes with a delightful and inspiring ending. This beautifully written and illustrated book offers comforting messages of hope, compassion, love and peace, with new perspectives for living in an unpredictable world.
