Synopsis

Sister Lucy's Great Big Family by Susie Poole

Beautiful picture book for young children based on a true story. Deep in the tea-rich, dirt-poor hills north of Nairobi, Kenya, the sun rises and sets and a miracle gently unfolds. Every day, Sister Lucy gets her 'good-at-thinking' head to work and together with a bigger-than-usual helping of hope, turns dreams into reality for her great big family. Based on the story of a real orphanage in Kenya, best-selling illustrator Susie Poole takes children on an amazing journey of discovery, helping children to understand what it means to be truly loved and what can happen with just a small amount of faith.
