An introductory note explains that dePaola's poetic text pays tribute to two Bible verses and his soft transparent acrylics on tea-stained paper are inspired by Mexican folk art. In this uneven series, Islam and Christianity provide fairly useful overviews in terms of religion and history; Faith is a little shakier, occasionally making questionable assertions (e.g., including Krishna, one of the incarnations of Vishnu, as the "founder" of Hinduism). Artists from around the world (acknowledged, with photos, at book's end) illustrate Tutu's accessible retellings of the central stories of the Christian Bible.\n Zonderkidz isbn 978-0-310-71640-2 $12.99 Young, Jeanna, and Jacqueline Johnson Princess Joy's Birthday Blessings 40 pp.
