Board book: $6.99
About the book: An excellent tool to introduce little ones to Jesus, this board book is the perfect size for small hands to handle. Featuring warm illustrations and paired with a simple, rhyming text, kids will see for themselves what could happen if Jesus came to visit for the day. This book is helpful in starting conversations between parent and children about Jesus and can help bridge the gap in explaining the many ways a child can come to know and love Jesus.
My thoughts: From the very first page, the sweet words of this rhyming book touched my heart.....
If Jesus came to visit me,
I know just what I'd do.
I'd wrap my arms around him tight
And say, "I'm glad it's you!"
And then the rhymes take the child/children through their day with Jesus asking Him questions and sharing their day and play with Him. Oh what a lesson for we adults.... we need to ask Him and we need to take Him with us throughout our day.
And then Jesus and child walk hand in hand back home and Jesus answers (or so the child asserts) all his questions so I will understand. Well, God has answered all our questions in His Word and if we dwell in His word we'll understand.
Lastly, the child wants to give Jesus something - maybe his favorite toy. But then he decides the best thing to give Jesus is his heart. Oh what a wonderful lesson and it is told so that the small child will understand and is presented in a beautifully designed and illustrated little board book for the young child to keep close to himself. I think you know already, but I'll say it anyway, I recommend this book for you and the young child in your life.
