This is the Croatian version of Dear Children, the children's book about Medjugorje.
Život u Međugorju je bio jednostavan...
Ljudi su živjeli kao i tijekom proteklih stotine godina – uzgajali su usjeve, skrbili o stoci i provodili vrijeme s obitelji i prijateljima. Nebo je, međutim, imalo drugačije planove i selo se zauvijek promijenilo nakon što je skupina djece vidjela izvanredan prizor na obližnjem brdu jednoga ljetnog popodneva.
Tijekom povijesti ljude je u različitim dijelovima svijeta pohodila Marija, Isusova majka. Ipak, nitko nije očekivao da bi ona mogla pohoditi Međugorje, a najmanje od svih to je očekivalo šestero djece koja će postati poznata kao "vidioci". Iako to nisu mogli ni zamisliti, njezin nebeski pohod će preobraziti njihov uspavani zaselak u odredište nade i mira za ljude sa svih strana svijeta.
Marijine poruke počinju riječima "Draga djeco", a ona želi da je svaka osoba na svijetu vidi kao majku. Ovo je istinita priča o Međugorju i Kraljici Mira.

Immaculee Ilibagiza grew up in a country she loved, surrounded by a family she cherished. But in 1994 her idyllic world was ripped apart as Rwanda descended into a bloody genocide. Immaculee's family was brutally murdered during a killing spree that lasted three months and claimed the lives of nearly a million Rwandans.
Incredibly, Immaculee survived the slaughter. For 91 days, she and seven other women huddled silently together in the cramped bathroom of a local pastor while hundreds of machete-wielding killers hunted for them. It was during those endless hours of unspeakable terror that Immaculee discovered the power of prayer, eventually shedding her fear of death and forging a profound and lasting relationship with God. She emerged from her bathroom hideout having discovered the meaning of truly unconditional love-a love so strong she was able seek out and forgive her family's killers. The triumphant story of this remarkable young woman's journey through the darkness of genocide will inspire anyone whose life has been touched by fear, suffering, and loss.
In 1992, Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow was enjoying a pint with his brother when he got an idea that would change his life – and radically change the lives of others.
After watching a news bulletin about war-torn Bosnia, the two brothers agreed to take a week’s hiatus from work to help.
What neither of them expected is that what began as a one-time road trip in a beaten-up Landrover rapidly grew to become Magnus’s life’s work – leading him to leave his job, sell his house and direct all his efforts to feeding thousands of the world’s poorest children.
