MaryAnn Diorio - "Who is Jesus?"

Good Monday Morning Readers!

Today, MaryAnn Diorio visits Lagniappe to share about her children's book, "Who is Jesus?" 

Welcome, MaryAnn!

Children ask tough questions. Questions like, "Does Jesus still love me when I'm naughty?" This kind of question can pose a special challenge to parents, grandparents, and caregivers as they teach their children about God. In this delightful, heart-warming book, award-winning author Dr. MaryAnn Diorio helps answer some of these tough questions. As a mother, grandmother, and teacher, she has firsthand experience with children and has personally faced their difficult questions. WHO IS JESUS? presents a biblical picture of our Savior in a way that will help your child recognize Him as Love Personified. Little children will come to know Jesus as the essence of all that is good, holy, and true. As you read this book to your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or students, they will learn that Jesus Christ cares about them and loves them with a perfect love.

MaryAnn's stories for children have appeared in numerous magazines, including Junior Trails, Today's Christian Teen, and Zoomer & Co.  She is also the author of three non-fiction books for children on famous American authors and has taught writing at Rowan University and Regent University. MaryAnn holds the PhD in French and Comparative Literature from the University of Kansas. She is a Diplomate of the Institute of Children's Literature and holds the MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University with a concentration in writing for children.
