  • Description
  • Reviews

This is one of the most inspiring and touching stories about how one boy's dream revitalizes a whole village and renews their Faith! The setting is a post-communist Russian village were the church has been closed and all the contents had mysteriously disappeared. On the Eve of the Feast of St. Nicholas, the Patron of this church, a young boy (Alexis) is discussing the situation with grandmother (babushka). He wishes he could experience the beautiful Liturgy of the Feast but it appears hopeless. Still, his babushka explains that “A miracle happens when God enters into your dream. But first you must have the dream...”

The text is fully illustrated using the traditional icon technique and style. The book is a delightful seasonal story for the whole family; full of faith, hope and the beauty of tradition.

This delightful, beautifully illustrated book teaches children that no matter what they are doing, or what hour of the day it is, they too, can pray and their prayer can inspire others.
