Katherine Bogner says...
Pauline Books & Media provided me with a copy of The Life of Jesus in exchange for an honest review. Hands down, this is the favorite book Ive added to my classroom library this year. The Life of Jesus is a Graphic Novel which is stunningly illustrated with impeccable detail. Chronicling Jesus Incarnation from Birth through Ascension, it helps make the stories of Scripture come to life in a way that is relatable and attainable for my students. Including quotes and captions paired with colorful, comic book style stories, this book would be a memorable read for any intermediate or middle schooler. Each page also lists the direct Scripture References to each story. The book is broken into themed chapters and has a great table of contents to help you find just the story youd like to read. Id love to see a companion graphic novel covering the Acts of the Apostles!

Sister Maureen Crosby says...
I think graphic books are very informative and when a child develops more interest in reading, he or she will have background on the subject and will want to read more books.
