Cute, but not too cute
The Unsolvable Problem delights without being sugary, teaches without being preachy, and both demystifies and illuminates religious life.
What other book includes both a kid-friendly explanation of the Eucharist and a recipe for root-beer floats?!
Based on an amazing true story that happened in New York City just before the Fourth of July.
A New Series for Kids
The Unsolvable Problem is the first book in a new series called Little Convent in the Big City in which Mother Clare will invite readers into the real-life adventures of living religious life in New York City.
Through playful and conversational language, kids discover the convent chapel, the compassionate work of sisters, and the importance of the chapel bells (which you obey, of course, just like you obey your mother).
In The Unsolvable Problem, children encounter themes of providence, patriotism, and prayerfulness. They’ll learn about Adoration, service to the poor, and how to run to Jesus with life’s problems.
