My Little Life of Jesus - Karen Williamson, Illustrator - Amanda Enright

5 Stars!!!!!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR -
Karen Williamson worked as a London primary school teacher and publisher s editor before launching a successful career as a full-time writer. With three children of her own, she specializes in Bible stories for young readers.

Amanda Enright trained in London at Camberwell College of Art, the Royal College of Art, and St Martin s College of Art, winning a prize for drawing and a Special Student Award at the Annecy film festival. Amanda is inspired by Matisse and Picasso, and by beautiful old and new children s books, vintage fabrics, and toys. 

MY THOUGHTS -
I love this book!
There are gorgeous, bright colored pictures which are so important in children's books (and cookbooks LOL). The story is written simply so young minds will easily understand.
I love the padded hard cover front, I love the size -
But - what I loved most is that on each page after the written story is the corresponding bible reference! So you can look up the real verse in the Bible, show the child how to do it, and read the verse to them. They are never too young to start learning. This way they can see the story comes right from the Bible.


Thank you Kregel Publications for sending me this great book for my honest review - always can count on a great one from you guys!
