Editorial Reviews

This is a lovely, illustrated book which tells about the life of Thomas Merton, a monk, born in France, educated in England and the United States, and who eventually felt the call of God, became a monk and lived at Gethsemani Abbey in Kentucky.  Each page has one or more examples of each letter of the alphabet. Merton’s life story can serve as a role model for young children, demonstrating kindness, love and dedication.  He lived a purpose-driven life, advocating for peace and believing that the Earth is alive with God’s presence. –Congregational Libraries Today
