The author introduces young readers of ages 4-8 to the friends of Jesus in a clever repeated rhyming style based on "This Is the House That Jack Built." Children will hear about shepherds and disciples, people who needed help, and the women who met Jesus when he rose from the dead. God sent Jesus to be a friend to them and to us.
Shirley Neitzel, a former school teacher, is the author of several children's books including This Is the Ark that Noah Built from Augsburg Books. She lives in Grand Rapids, USA.
