My Little Life of Jesus by Karen Williamson, Amanda Enright
My Little Life of Jesus introduces the story of Jesus' life to 3-to 5-year-olds. It follows Jesus from His birth, being baptized by John, meeting the disciples and teaching them how to pray, telling His stories to people in nearby towns and villages, right through to His return to the heavenly Father. Illustrated throughout with adorable artwork from a popular Candle Books artist, there is also a map included to show the land where Jesus lived. This padded hardcover comes complete with a presentation page for gift or award giving.

The little book My Little Life of Jesus is perfect for your toddler’s hands, it measures a little over 6” all around. It is beautifully illustrated with bright colors that draw the little ones in.
Keep in mind that this is just a book to introduce Jesus to our little ones; it is simplistic and quickly gets to the point. I found the The Very First Christmas, a wonderful way to teach our three year old about the meaning of Christmas, in a way that he could understand.
We then meet Jesus With His Family, now when he hears that Jesus was a carpenter, he has the being of the idea. He loved as I explained the map of where Jesus grew up. Kept his interest, and gave his little mind a look at his faith.
The book goes on and became a real joy to share with each other, a great beginning learning tool. I highly recommend this wonderful little book, and so glad we have thin in our home.
I received this book through Kregel Blog Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
