Who is Jesus By; MaryAnn Diorio

Children ask tough questions. Questions like, "Does Jesus still love me when I'm naughty?" This kind of question can pose a special challenge to parents, grandparents, and caregivers as they teach their children about God.
In this delightful, heart-warming book, award-winning author Dr. MaryAnn Diorio helps answer some of these tough questions. As a mother, grandmother, and teacher, she has firsthand experience with children and has personally faced their difficult questions.

WHO IS JESUS? presents a biblical picture of our Savior in a way that will help your child recognize Him as Love Personified. Little children will come to know Jesus as the essence of all that is good, holy, and true. As you read this book to your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or students, they will learn that Jesus Christ cares about them and loves them with a perfect love.

My Review
Who is Jesus
By: MaryAnn Diorio
Illustrated by:
Kim Sponaule

I love books written by MaryAnn. This is a great children's book about " Who is Jesus ".  I have little grandchildren and i now they are at the age of asking just the kind of questions about Jesus as written in this cute book. I loved for each question which was a negative  MaryAnn bought out the positive of what Jesus really is. Loved each one had a Bible scripture to where the answer was to the question.  This story shows Jesus for who he is Love. What better way then for your kids to get to know Jesus as good and holy and true.  That Jesus loves them! What a awesome love!!
The book was beautifully illustrated by Kim Sponaugle. Lovely pictures and bright colors children will want to see.  " Isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful "!

 This book was given to me by Book Fun Club in exchange for my honest opinion. Thanks to Fred St Laurent for this bookfun club and TBCN. Thanks to the publishers and the sponsors. Most of all thank you authors if not for you would not have anything to read.
