Illustrated by Claudine Gevry
Sections of the book include:
~ Who Jesus Is. Some of the stories in this section include, but are not limited too:
- "The prophets said Jesus was the Promised One", "Peter said Jesus was the Christ", John the disciple said Jesus is the Word", and "Jesus said He is . . . "
- "He Healed Many", He raised the Dead", "He forgave sin", and "He went to the Cross".
- "He taught using Parables", He Taught the Golden Rule", "He taught us He Loves Us."
~ Where it Happened. This section includes simple but accurate maps for children to look at and reference the Biblical stories.
~ Why it Happened. I really appreciated it when I got to this section. It begins with, "Why did Mary Name her Baby Jesus?" and ends with, "Why did Jesus Die on the Cross?"
~ How it Happened. This too is a section, that without, the book would have been incomplete, How grateful I am, as a mom, that the author put this section into the book, trying the previous sections together into life application with stories such as, "How do we Receive Eternal Life" and "How Does Jesus want us to Live?"
The book itself, is high enough quality for me to have spent the money on, to add to my daughter's library. However it has an added feature that is the icing on the cake - - a CD with 30 children's songs. Each song is set in a musical arrangement that a child will enjoy and my daughter has loved listening to it, even at 21 months of age.
The Jesus Book is available at Amazon.com. You can also check out other reviews at the Thomas Nelson Review page.
