- Review by Elizabeth
"Paul Meets Jesus" is the story of Paul and his conversion. Paul despised Christians and did everything in his power to stop them from believing in God's love. Discover what happens when Paul meets Jesus. Will he listen to Jesus' message of love?
"Paul Meets Jesus" from ZonderKidz is an "I Can Read! Level 2" book. It is written for developing readers. It was perfect for my daughter, who is in Grade 1, to read on her own. It was a comfortable read for her. She was challenged by some of the words, but not so much that she became frustrated.
The illustrations have a comic feel to them, adding some humor to a serious story. Our favourite illustration is on page 8 as Paul is walking down the road. The expression on Paul's face is one of pure determination and it just made us all chuckle.
The back of the book contains some additional information about Paul, which includes a "Words to Live by" and a "Did You Know" section.
We didn't see a place where they mentioned where the story is found in the Bible. I believe this would be a great addition to the book.
"Paul Meets Jesus" is a great way to introduce your child to the story of Paul in a way that can easily be understood. Older children may like a more in depth telling of the story, but this is perfect for younger children.
