I liked this book, although I would not use it in a classroom. What I liked about this text is that it was written as a story. The book followed the traditional role of story beginnings by using the line, "Once there lived a man named Jesus." The subject was heavy, but there is not a way to make light of the story of Jesus. I think that the book portrayed this heavy subject matter in a tasteful way that will allow for young readers to learn about the last days of Jesus without subjecting them to the violence that is in the original story. For example, Jesus' crucifixion is traditionally a very violent story with stone throwing, nailing is hands and feet, and a throne crown forced on his head. This book kept the reasons and painful feelings that can be stirred about Jesus' death without the violence. For example the author wrote, "The soldiers brought Jesus to a hill outside the city, and the put him on a cross. Jesus uttered a final prayer. And he died." The feelings of what the story was saying was really shown through the illustrations rather than the text. The illustrations were bold and dark. Especially during the crucifixion scene. The picture were done in oil paint and bold black lines which portrayed the mood of the story well. Overall the message of this book is to love one another the way that Jesus did in the story. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0590318306, Hardcover)

Lauren Thompson retells the story of Jesus' last days on earth by focusing on lessons that are filled with forgiveness and love in Love One Another: The Last Days of Jesus. This universal message is embodied in Jesus' interaction with the downtrodden, the outcasts, and his closest friends--the disciples--reminding young readers that we are to love both our enemies and our friends. The disciples' denial of Jesus shows us that everyone makes mistakes, which serves as the premier example of the joy and peace that forgiving others and being forgiven can bring. These basic, fundamental lessons of life are made particularly straightforward and memorable by Thompson's simple language and the stirring, colorful illustrations by Elizabeth Uyehara that complement it. Young minds will not only be led through the story of Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection, but more importantly, they will learn that "no sorrow is so great that love cannot heal it." --Jill Heatherly
