Which Way Today?, written by Maryann Ruben, a boy comes to a fork in the road. He doesn’t know which way to turn. A man who is standing there says, “Follow me.” So the boy does just that.
Then the boy turns into a teenager and comes to another fork in the road. Same thing happens. This pattern continues throughout the story until the young boy has grown up into an old man. At the end, the old man is lead into Heaven.
The story is an allegory for our life. When we come to a crossroads, we must choose which way to go. If we choose to follow Jesus, we will be led into Heaven at the “end of the road.”
The illustrations by Jesse Blythe Skidmore are colorful and expressive, but a bit cartoonish.
The author includes an Afterword at the end of the book. There is also a website link, along with a coupon code, where you can download a FREE audio copy of this book.
