More fun for adults Mar 15, 2004
This book, along with "The Parables of Jesus," by the same author, has great writing, but there is too much of it! I have found that younger kids, who focus mainly on pictures, get bored and restless while waiting for the reader to plow through all the text found on one page. Also, while the illustrations are colorful, they have a one-dimensional, stained glass quality that I immediately associate with "boring." Older kids who can read alone and don't rely on illustrations may enjoy these books, but I would be careful in buying them with a young child in mind. I reccomend Joel Anderson's books if you are looking for good bible stories that include great illustrations.

When my teenage children were small, we adored reading Tomie's "Strega Nona." It was not until recently I became a church librarian and realized that Tomie has written all sorts of religious books for children. We had a clown ministry in our church and so I bought Tomie's "The Clown of God", a perfect supplement! Now I have gotten several other of his books such as "Patrick, Patron Saint of Ireland" and "The Story of Mary". The lovely thing about these books is their use of actual fact told in a way ages 4-8 can understand, and Tomie's drawing style which is lively and endearing to children and adults. I like the gowns, cloaks, hoods, Mediterranean look, arches, ocean waves. The stylization is lovely! I would like to see Tomie do a book on Martin Luther, or religions of other lands. If you ever read this, Tomie, I am a great fan of your work! Keep it coming!
