Who is Jesus?
Winner in the 2014 Indie Excellence Book Awards Contest
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.
