Blessed Father, Herman of Alaska!

I am not familiar with the children's book shown in your photo. Could you share more about it?

Thank you!

Hi Amy!

The books is Saint Herman of Alaska by S.A. Smith and I found it here online:

We really like it! It was given to us by our two of our children's godparents.

Hope you can get it!
