Would You Like to Know? ~ Review

Would You Like to Know?
The Complete Collection
By Tim Dowley 
Illustrations by Eira Reeves

When it comes to God, prayer, Jesus, and the Bible children have questions and this collection of six books covers these topics and more.

Would You Like to Know About God? explains that God's story is found in the Bible and tells how He created the world. Though we can never know what God looks like we can see what He is like by the world around us. We are also told that we can talk to God through prayer.

Would You Like to Know How to Pray?
 explains that prayer is like talking, only instead of to a person we see prayer is talking to God. Prayer can be done anywhere and anytime. 

Would you like to know Jesus? explains how God sent Jesus to the world to take the punishment for our sins. It also explains how we can become Jesus's friend and what that friendship entails.

Would You Like to Know the Bible? explains that the Bible is a special book because it teaches about God and how to talk to Him. It also explains that the Bible has two parts - one about the people of God and the other about Jesus.

Would You Like to Know the Story of Christmas?
is a simplified version of the Bible story from Mary being told she would have a special baby to the birth of Jesus and the visit from the wise men. It is then explained that Christmas is a celebration in remembrance of Jesus's birth.

Would You Like to Know the Story of Easter? 
tells how Jesus along with His 12 special friends (disciples) went to a feast in Jerusalem. Jesus was betrayed and sentenced to die. But as He died He asked for forgiveness for the people. His friends were sad that He died but not for long because He was raised from the dead. Easter is the remembrance of Jesus's death and resurrection.

Each book is under 30 pages with colorful illustrations that correspond with the text portion of the book. This collection would be appropriate for ages 3-8 with help from Mom or Dad. This would also be a great family devotional option. The six books come in a small sturdy slipcover that feels as if it is constructed from board book materials - perfect for keeping these small books together in an easily findable location. The books are approximately 5" x 6" and slipcover is just over 1" wide.

I was provided a review copy of this book set by the publisher with no expectation of a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.


About the Books:
In this new addition to the fantastic Would You Like to Know? series, six little books are featured in one boxed gift set. Each book offers a starting point for young children to explore some of the key points of their faith and gain a greater understanding of Christianity. Each title has accessible illustrations, an inscription page, and notes for parents. A wonderful gift for those getting to know the church.
