Jesus Calling for Little Ones
I created everything. Of all My
creations - from the sun, oceans,
flowers, big fish, and tiny butterflies -
My children are My favorite!"
Jesus Calling for Little Ones is written as though God were speaking to children about creation, how important children are to Him, and how He wants kids to praise Him and forgive one another. Sarah Young's simple but inspiring words are cheerfully illustrated by Antonia Woodward. The characters look very much like the old Chutes and Ladders kids, don't they? But the setting is ancient Israel, and throughout the book, children are running and playing and spending time with their families as they did during the time of Jesus.
It's not a little board book, either. At 22 pages, it's a sit-down story for a toddler or preschooler. Woodjie (age 8) is able to read most of the book on his own (except for words like Thessalonians, ok?) and picked this book out himself. It would make an excellent addition to a church library or as a gift for a preschooler. It's part of the Jesus Calling® series, which has sold over 14 million copies worldwide. I think you'd enjoy it.
