There is nothing quite so rewarding then to experience a child's sense of joy in reading and at the same time discovering the person of Jesus on a personal level.
The Knowing My God Series Starter Set is an excellent way to introduce the child/children in your life to Jesus.
In Jesus Invites Me Matthew 11:28-30 is examined. Jesus asks us to come to Him and to give Him the burdens we carry. He will give us rest, a rest that is internal to our soul, a rest that gives us a freedom.
In Jesus Saves Me John 10:14-16 is examined with Jesus as the Good Shepherd. The role of the shepherd is examined in regard to us being sheep.The love and care of the shepherd to each sheep is how Jesus views us.
In Jesus Shows Me John 15:9-14 is examined. We learn about the love of God and how we can see it in the world around us. From watching animals interact with one another we can learn about friendship and abiding in God's love.
These 3 board books are sturdy and can take the rough handling little ones sometimes subject their books to. Each book is 18 pages in length, alternating images with text throughout. The second to last page is for the adult/parent offering reading suggestions to make the reading experience more meaningful as the child ages.
For a younger child who may not be able to fully grasp the meaning of some of words parents may want to just read the verse portion. The broader story can be part of the growing with your child attribute that the book recommends in the reading suggestions offered to the grown-up.
The suggested age for these books is 0 - 7 years old. The set is bound together with a paper band that includes various activities to enhance the learning experience - to help your child to think and grasp the message being taught.
I was provided a copy of this series by the publisher through TBCN/BookFun in exchange for my honest review.
