Ordinary Mary's Extraordinary Deed

Celebrate the fifteenth anniversary edition of this feel-good story that continues to inspire and celebrate a world full of ordinary deeds!

Can one child's good deed change the world? It can when she’s Ordinary Mary—an ordinary girl from an ordinary school, on her way to her ordinary house—who stumbles upon ordinary blueberries. When she decides to pick them for her neighbor, Mrs. Bishop, she starts a chain reaction that multiplies around the world.

Updated illustrations and endpapers are now paired with this beloved storyline as it stirs a whole new generation on to more random acts of kindness--proving one child's compassion and empathy really can change the world.

Emily Pearson is the co-author of Fuzzy Red Bathrobe: Questions from the Heart for Mothers and Daughters. She lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Fumi Kosaka was born and raised in Japan, and studied illustration at Brigham Young University. Ordinary Mary's Extraordinary Deed is among the first of many books she has illustrated.

My daughter's favorite
Every night when I ask my four year old daughter to pick a book to read, this is the book she chooses 4 out of 5 times.  She absolutely loves the pictures and story and what better message could I pass along to my daughter than what this story is about.  She loves that Mary helps so many.  Definitely a great book to give as gifts and a must have for your child's library at home.

My Go-To Gift
I love to give books to people as gifts and everyone loves a good children's book.  This one happens to be one of my favorites and my go-to gift book.  The illustrations are darling and I love the pay-it-forward message the book portrays.  Doing a few small things can change the world.
