The Light of the World: The Life of Jesus for Children by Katherine Paterson, illustrations by Francois Roca

I don’t usually count picture books in my total, nor do I usually write them up, but I thought I’d make an exception for this one.

I read about this book on Cheryl Klein’s blog, where she talked about how the book came to be. I liked the way that she talked about the way that Jesus and faith were presented in the book, and, in the past, I have appreciated Katherine Paterson’s discussions about her own faith, so I went out and bought it just a couple days later. After working in a Christian bookstore, Mike and I are both very sensitive about the way that faith and Jesus are presented to children, and this one passed the test. The pictures are beautiful and beautifully illustrate the theme of Jesus as the light of the world. Difficult things are explained in ways that children can understand without talking down to children, which is not always an easy feat when it comes to scripture. My friends should be warned that they can probably expect to get this book for their own children in the future.

My full 2007 list will be posted later today – I have given up on the idea of finishing anything else today.
