SAMPLING OF READER REVIEWS FOR WHO IS JESUS?

  •  “Who is Jesus by MaryAnn Diorio and illustrated by Kim Sponaugie is absolutely fabulous! After having just read this book I cannot wait to read it to my grandkids. The simple way this was written and the colorful images will most certainly appeal to children. I loved the format and the added Bible verses corresponding to the lesson. It shows the nature of Jesus Christ and how He is always with us. It is easy to follow and understand. The author and illustrator have both done a fantastic job of bringing the love of Jesus to the mind of a child. I HIGHLY recommend this book to any family that desires to bring Jesus into the life of their child.” ~ Karen Ketcham
  • “This book is a delightful read with a simple, yet profound message for children.” ~ Christine Strittmatter 
  • “What a wonderful children’s book!” ~ K. Markovich
