Jo S. Kittinger's latest book has its roots in religion, but would appeal to anyone. The lessons of community that it teaches are important for those who need help and those who could lend a helping hand.
Thomas Gonzalez's artwork is impressive. His intricate pencil drawings look realistic and he smartly adjusts the colors as the book progresses. At first, the illustrations appear washed out and gray, but as the community grows, the home and everyone around it are more vibrant and bright.
Starting over can be difficult, having a book like "The House on Dirty-Third Street" can smooth the transition.
A gentle message of faith.
