I love children’s picture books when they are well-designed, visually engaging, and tell a fantastic story. I’ve seen some great picture books from David C. Cook, but when they sent me this one, I had a feeling that it would be good. A book about The Story of King Jesus has to be good, right?
This book is pretty sweet. Take a look at the book description:
“People of God pass their faith to the next generation by telling the story of how God rescues his children. This richly illustrated book continues to tell that story—from the creation of the world to Jesus’ victory over death. Designed for children ages 4 to 8, The Story of King Jesus is the gospel told in a single story—a story meant to be read from start to finish in one sitting.
The Story of King Jesus will captivate your child’s imagination, nurture their spiritual curiosity, and draw them into the full Bible story as they embark on a lifetime of following Jesus the King.”
Here are my top three features:
- It tells the story of the Bible from Creation through Jesus. The story shares a good amount of detail from the Old Testament, including information about Israel, the kings, the prophets, and the 400 years of silence.
- The pictures are engaging and child-friendly. They aren’t overwhelming or scary (like some children’s book pictures can be), but are developmentally-appropriate.
- The words will be very easy for young children to understand. The author stayed away from big words, so you can read the story and your kids will understand it.
