"In my home parish, one teacher noticed that the people of God in The Great Family have stars on them and welled up with tears. The illustrations are powerful. I know my church is planning to order multiple copies to give out at baptisms and for new families."—W. Lee Dickson, MBA, President, Godly Play Board of Directors
