Book Review - Get to Know Jesus - I'm Giving One Away

One of the primary things we do in children's ministry is to introduce children to Jesus! This is also one of the best things we do! So when I received a copy of a, "Full-Color Biography for Kids - Get to Know Jesus" book from Zonderkidz, I was very happy to review it - and am happy for the opportunity to give one away as well!

Get to Know Jesus
Author - Nancy I Sanders
Publisher - ZonderKidz
Ages - 6-10

Favorite Features - 
  • Book walks through the life of Jesus and helps children come to know Who He is
  • Full color photos, maps, drawings, paintings, charts and more make this a very attractive book
  • I love the time-line for Jesus' life!
  • Includes words and definitions throughout to help children understand words which may be unfamiliar
ZonderKidz says; "Jesus--part of the Get to Know series--is a unique biography about Jesus, the Son of God. Focusing on the life and character of this Biblical hero, using color photographs, maps, and other visual resources to tell the whole story, young biography fans will come to learn more about Jesus and the role He plays in history. Featuring a bibliography and scriptural references throughout, this is sure to become a favorite for young readers and for first book reports."

Get to Know Jesus is a great book to have at home and at church - and one to use! When a question comes up about Who Jesus Is and what He has said and done, this little book is a great resource to help answer children's questions and help them better understand who Jesus is!

I'm very happy to say, not only did ZonderKidz send me one copy of; Get to Know Jesus, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only)! If you are over the age of 18 and would like to be included in the drawing for this curriculum - which will be on July 10, 2014, please comment below to let me know your favorite verse(s) about Jesus; mine is John 21:25 - "Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written." I LOVE this verse because it tells me there are a LOT of things Jesus did which are not included in the Bible; which leaves me wanting to pay closer attention to the ones which are in the Bible!

In addition if you have followed on Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG or at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed About the Children's Department by email you will receive one entry for each of these which you have done. Plus, if you "share" this post, you'll receive another entry (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win Get to Know Jesus and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading About the Children's Department and for sharing it with the people you know!
