What Others Are Saying…

"One of the best books of Jesus for young people I have encountered.”
Madeleine L’Engle, Newbery Award-winning author of the children’s classic, A Wrinkle in Time

“I have long admired Kathryn Slattery’s gift of talking to kids about God – not talking down to them, but with them. In her new book, My Friend Jesus, she gives invaluable guidance to parents on how to bring their child into a relationship with the Lord, one that cannot start soon enough in our oft-troubled times. If you are concerned about a child’s spiritual welfare, you must buy this book.”
Edward Grinnan, editor in chief of Guideposts magazine, and author of The Promise of Hope

“… A magnificent piece of writing, making the Gospel so plain and at the same time losing none of its beauty.”
Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, author of the international best-seller The Power of Positive Thinking and founder of Guideposts magazine

“Kathryn Slattery has told the story of Jesus so simply, briefly, cutting right to the essentials, managing to mix the profoundest truth with humor, talking to children without talking down to them. My Friend Jesus goes on our grandparent bookshelf with great anticipation.”
Elizabeth and John Sherrill, Co-authors of best-selling inspirational classics, The Hiding Place, and The Cross and the Switchblade

My Friend Jesus ends in a prayer, but reading this beautifully illustrated book aloud to a child would be an experience of prayer itself.”
Rick Hamlin, executive editor of Guideposts magazine, and author of 10 Prayers You Can’t Live Without
