Reviews

"The bright, textured, and expressive illustrations depict a diverse and multigenerational neighborhood community and beautifully complement the story." --School Library Journal

An allegorical tale about a mustard seed that grows into a spreading tree rather than a mere bush. Spirituality & Practice


The authors retell and greatly expand Jesus short parable of the mustard seed, with engaging full-page color illustrations of a diverse community set in a modern city. Theres not too much text on each page, and the story builds up to its theological conclusion both beautifully and simply. Christian Century
