Jesus contains stories of Jesus’ life starting with Mary learning she will give birth and covering parts of the Bible such as Zaccheus, the loaves and the fishes and the little children coming to Jesus, all stories that appeal to children. The illustrations are soft and rather comforting and although nothing earth shattering, the telling is true and the book will appeal to young children.



4 out of 5 stars.

Children, ages 4 to 8.

Christian Impact
