"The cover and end pages of this book are beautifully illustrated, and the maps provided show California as a whole and important dates in the life of Junipero Serra. Junipero is called the Founding Father of California and he was a very famous missionary. He has a long history on the west coast that is very detailed throughout this book. The pictures are what will draw students in, and every page is full of information for the reader. The book is organized by dates and is a very useful resource if you were intending to use the work for a research project. I would recommend this book for an older audience due to the amount of information per page, and this would really get long for a younger group. The end of the book includes a more summarized timeline that is covered more in depth within the book." said.

"Junípero Serra is also a 12" x 9" hardcover for children from Ignatius Press. In fact, it shares the same illustrator (Emmanuel Beaudesson) as Let's Pray the Rosary, so you know right off the bat that the book is going to have lovely artwork inside. The book begins with a homily by Pope Francis on Junípero Serra in May 2015 preparation for his canonization in September 2015. Then, we start with Serra's early life, his tiny stature, and the fear that he would not live long after birth. However, he grew up and was a hard worker. He was also a quick learner and impressed his Franciscan teachers. He later became a priest and a teacher, but he dreamed of being a missionary. He eventually realizes that dream and he travels to the Americas. The book traces out his history and mission success in Upper California, San Diego, and San Carlos. The book concludes by speaking of Serra's statue being in Washington D.C., John Paul II making him Blessed, and Pope Francis making him a saint. This is a fascinating book about a saint who had an impact on the United States, so it is definitely worth checking out. However, due to the sheer volume of words in this book, I'd recommend it for ages 8 to 9 and up!" said.
