React explained to newcomers

How would you explain the benefits of React to a dev that has never worked with the library?

I'm mentoring a friend that's currently mastering JavaScript/jQuery, but I'd like to eventually introduce him to a more modern stack (most likely webpack, React AND Vue, Babel, etcetera). I was wondering what's the best approach to explain the benefits of React as a whole without making that explanation too complex.
