There once was a woman who planted some wheat... So begins this rhythmical, festive children s book about the joy of a farmer as she works to grow the wheat and bake that bread that she will offer back to her Creator in Eucharistic celebration. The vibrant images -- reminiscent of fields in the American mid-west -- sparkle in light-saturated, warm jewel-tones and provide the perfect backdrop for the story of a woman in love with the earth, and her labor, and equally in love with her God.

Bread is an ancient traditional symbol of spiritual transformation. Here, in The Woman and the Wheat, Jane Meyer has captured its essence beautifully. Every child will be touched by this beautifully told and illustrated story of
seeds of wheat turned into bread and, then, transformed into the body of our Lord. --Peter Reinhart author of The Bread Baker s Apprentice
A truly significant contribution to Christian children s literature. In a style reminiscent of that of a ballad, Jane tells the central story of Christianity. It is the story of a grain of wheat, dead in the soil, rising with the first rays of the
spring sun, bringing an abundant harvest to us, and becoming the bread that gives us life... Ned Gannon's paintings provide a perfect illustration to this beautiful story. Together with its companion book,The Man and the Vine, The Woman and the Wheatwill make a wonderful first introduction for children to the mystery of the Divine Liturgy. --Fr Sergei Sveshnikov, author of Break the Holy Bread
