I read all three "Molly" books at the same time. It's a fun, sweet series filled with virtue and simple lessons about the Catholic faith to inspire young readers. Jean Egolf is equally talented at writing and illustration. Good books for parents/ grandparents to share with their children to spark conversations about vocations, sacraments, attending school, bullies, and more.
