If you are or wish to be a child of Mary, you will read this little book because it speaks of your Mother; you will feel a secret impulse to reread it; you will discover in it new glimpses and profound thoughts which the author himself has not suspected and which he, unassisted, would not have been able to express in words.
This little book, consisting of nine chapters was written by the author for “little children” (spiritually) who “wish to approach the presence of the Mother of the King of kings.” They were characterized by the author as “not so learned nor pretentious with their Mother,” nor are they “who (can) read great ceremony a prepared discourse expressing some new remarkable thoughts and sentiments about the Blessed Virgin.“
The book is written to allow “simple souls to speak to the Blessed Virgin in simpler language than comes from the tongues of the learned.” It will “allow children, when they surround and caress their Mother, to ignore ceremonies observed by guards who present arms before a queen.”
