The Woman at the Well by Emily Freeman. Illustrated by Simon Dewey. Published by Deseret Book.

This is a beautifully illustrated book that tells the story of the woman who meets Jesus at the well and is taught about living water. The author makes the woman come to life, in such a way that we can all see ourselves in her. Simon Dewey manages to convey emotion and realism that compliment the story through his paintings. It is a lovely way to teach this Bible story to children and adults alike.
