- Review by Jenn
Enter: “I Will Follow Jesus.” I’ve heard Judah Smith’s name a few times, but got really excited when I saw this children’s Bible storybook. It’s perfect for kids who are starting to grasp that they, too, can have a relationship with Jesus, and He can be a part of their everyday life.
The book is split up in Old and New Testaments, and after every few stories, there’s a page that touches on an aspect in the past stories that can relate to the children’s lives, titled, “I Will Follow Jesus.” At the end is a short prayer that kids can pray regarding the topic on the page.
This book really is a great one for teaching kids what it means to have a relationship with Jesus and how they can follow Him. The illustrations are beautiful, and the stories are worded well to keep kids’ attention. I highly recommend it! (Posted on 1/27/2016)
