This beautiful hardback Bible storybook for 3-6-year-olds uses the Bible’s teaching on favoritism from James chapter 2 to encourage children to love and welcome people regardless of their wealth, personality, or background, just like Jesus does.

Jesus knows that everyone needs him to rescue them from their sin, and he welcomes anyone who is sorry and asks to be his friend. In this book, children will learn that Christians and churches are called to be like Jesus: to give a big, wide welcome to all kinds of people so that they can hear the good news for themselves.

From the author of the bestselling God’s Very Good Idea, a book celebrating diversity and dignity.

A phenomenal book on an important topic for adults and kids alike. Trillia's writing paired with Catalina's illustrations hit a home run.

Pastor, Cornerstone Church, Atlanta

The compelling and catchy narrative ensures it will be a regular read around my house. Trillia introduces the concept of impartial and unconditional love as something ordinary, fundamental, and inherent to what we all want. This book will do much more than just introduce a conversationóit will help imprint this virtue on the heart of the reader, as well as the one being read to!

Blair Linne

Author, Finding My Father

This is a childrenís story that is not just for children. Trillia winsomely shares why we should never play favorites. This is a book you want to have in your home, your school, or your church library, because this is a message we want reverberating from usóthat Christians model Jesus in how we love all people.

“Great Read and Biblically Faithful”

This is a great book that explores a less well-known passage from the book of James to speak into a pretty relevant issue. I love the artwork (I've got a number of the books in this series) and the writing is both easy to understand and faithful to the Bible text. I use these with the younger age group at our church (e.g. 3-8s) but they could probably work for those a little younger or older. It's really good print quality too and the hardback cover means that it should survive being pulled off the bookshelf every Sunday!


“Timely read!”

Do you view yourself as welcoming? Do you treat others differently based on their social status? Often times we can play favorites without even realizing it. This is not the example scripture sets for us, we know this because James 2 instructs us to not show partiality. The Big Wide Welcome encourages children to love like Jesus loves, not playing favorites but inviting every and all people into knowing the love of Christ and the Gospel.

What a timely read! During a time where division is rampant, pressures to pick a side and play a favorite are everywhere we turn ( think television, social media, even in our own churches at time, sadly), we can encourage our children and our own hearts to welcome others like Jesus did.


“Expressive reading by Newbell”

We may all be guilty of playing favorites at times. The Big Wide Welcome is a reminder that we should love like Jesus and embrace diversity.
