The text is quite traditional, which I appreciate. I was never able to get used to saying “you and your” when first I was taught “thou and thy.” But I’ve always been one for what we’d consider elevated language- even as a child! I think I was born old.
The illustrations for Hail Mary fit the prayer perfectly. Full of beautiful blues with touches of rose and gold, the colors are perfect for Our Lady. And the pages follow the first four joyful mysteries of the Holy Rosary- the Annunciation, Visitation, Nativity, and Presentation in the Temple.
The book is filled with sweet, smiling faces, happy children, cute animals and lovely landscapes.
Hail Mary would make a great Baptism gift, Christmas present, or new baby gift (I plan on gifting one myself, soon!). Get yourself a copy or two today for your little one and for another’s!
