I received a copy of MY LITTLE LIFE OF JESUS from Lion Hudson via Kregel in exchange for an honest review. The book is written by Karen Williamson and illustrated by Amanda Enright. I’ve read other children’s book by Karen Williamson and enjoyed the simple complexities immensely. This book was no exception.
It spans from Jesus’s birth to his death; children will recognize Christmas and Easter, and be able to understand the background significance of those holidays. This can also be read on those holidays so that children can see a wider range of Jesus’s life at those times.
The illustrations are colorful, so they will keep a young reader’s interest, and the writing is easy enough for a child to read on his or her own. No matter if it is read by a child or by an adult to a child – or by an adult for pure enjoyment – great conversations will be launched. Readers can then turn to the Bible for more in depth reading.
I highly recommend MY LITTLE LIFE OF JESUS to families and classrooms. This can become a beloved book.
I look forward to discovering more book by Karen Williamson. This one is being passed on to a friend for her son.
