Light of the World
Katherine Paterson retells the life of Jesus in simple, beautiful language for all ages, making the story new again through her trademark generosity and compassion. When the people looked at all the sadness and evil in the world, they had trouble believing that God was in charge. God's kingdom, said Jesus, is as tiny as the smallest of seeds, but when it is planted it grows into such a huge tree that the birds make their nests in It's branches. Ages 4-8.
