The Jesus Book, by Stephen Elkins is a great book for little (and a little bit bigger) minds. Each section of the book answers a who, what, when, where, why, or how question of faith in child friendly language. We enjoyed sharing it together by reading the main topic headings on each page and stopping to look at the various maps and read more on the in depth pages. You can see sample pages by clicking on the title above. The book also includes a CD with kids Bible songs and scripture. We enjoyed listening and dancing to the tunes during our Friday morning family cleaning time!
The music CD included is appropriate for infants through big kids. A preschooler can enjoy the story through the simple headings. Early elementary aged children will enjoy listening to the longer sections of text, although probably not all at once. Upper elementary aged children will be able to use the book as an independent study resource for their personal faith growth. No doubt, adults can learn a lot as well! Overall, I think this is a great book a family can use together to grow in their faith walk.
