Meet Jesus: The Life and Lessons of a Beloved Teacher by Lynn Tuttle Gunney, illustrated by Jane Conteh-Morgan (Skinner House, 2007). Roberta and Christopher Nelson, authors of Unitarian Universalist parenting curricula including Parents as Resident Theologians, commented:
This story opens a door for understanding and having conversations with children about Jesus. Our children are growing up in world of increasing diversity. They hear conflicting ideas and views about Jesus. They need to have information and conversations with trusting adults as they begin to explore the many images and stories they see on TV, read in the media, and hear in the school yard. This book will help parents and leaders engage with the issues. We feel the book fills a real need.
