Who is Jesus?
By MaryAnn Diorio Phd. MFA
Illustrated by Kim Sponaugie
34 colorful pages PB
REVIEW: I’m thankful for the review copy from The Book Club Network www.bookfun.org that introduced me to this beautiful book and it’s author and illustrator. The pictures are adorable and help bring the message of the story to life.
Each section of the book asks a question of the reader. For example; “Is he someone who yells at you when you cry?”
“No, Jesus doesn't yell at you when you cry. Jesus helps you blow your nose.”
Then there is a scripture to stand on, “God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.” Psalm 46:1
Then near the end of the book the author shares all the things Jesus is. The illustrator brings out the attributes in pictures. Winning combination.
This book is a tool for parents to help young ones address the questions they are having by sharing this book with them. It helps generate talk about these topics and gets them thinking. I will also have them see other kids asking the same questions.
I highly recommend it for parents, grandparents and/or friends to share with young ones.
