My Review:
 Mary, Jesus' mother had a very important job to do. Her life was truly meant to glorify God in every way. She was specially chosen to carry, deliver, and raise Jesus a man that was chosen to deliver us. His death on the cross meant so much to every one of our lives and some how, some way, whether we believe or not, His life&death touch us all. Mary(Get To Know), is full of interesting facts about this remarkable woman. You learn all about how she was raised and how she chose to raise her children. She was a very good example to us all on how to be obedient to God and how we are to put that first in our lives.

 She taught her children to be that way. Knowing what she knew about the Lord's death and resurrection--I'm sure it wasn't easy for her each day, but she trusted God to the utmost. But because of her obedience and how she learned to stay at out of God's way, generations will benefit from that. She was a great woman of God and the best example of the Proverbs 31 woman that the Bible speaks about. This book is a great biography to teach our 6-10 year olds all about her and it is full of information as well as timelines, maps, and facts to gain further knowledge.
