The Origami Nun book cover

Seven-year old Ruth can't speak, but that doesn't mean she can't think. She knows her birthday is going to be good as her beloved great-aunt has exciting plans for her.


What she doesn't expect is a magical paper nun, an encounter with a bully who may not be what she seems or a school day to remember.


Because, before her special day is over, Ruth is in for some very big surprises.


Origami is the magical Japanese art of paper-folding and you can find out more about it at the Origami for Kids website.

Bullying is when children hurt or scare other children on purpose. 

Bullying can hurt everyone. Children who are bullied sometimes have a hard time standing up for themselves. Please visit the Stop Bullying website for children to find out how you can help stop bullying. Thank you!

"What a delightfully written book! This is one I plan to share with my daughter at some point because I think she would like it, too! I love the fact that the author featured a mute heroine, and magic is infused in such a wonderful way. In addition to that, it deals with a subject with which our youth are very familiar - bullying! … I connected with the character, the story, and I enjoyed the magical nature of the story … I hope the author writes several sequels!” [From a 5-star review at My Devotional Thoughts]
