Maite Roche doesn't disappoint! This is basically an expanded version of The Bible for Little Ones, and it's totally worth it. Beautiful, sweet illustrations with a lot of extra details (like the dove on every page) and simple, but not childish, text.

Beautifully illustrated. Both my 4 year old and my 7 year old were captivated. I'm sure it will be read again and again.

Just beautiful! The colors are gorgeous, pictures are detailed- so many things for children to look at. The best $4 I think I have ever spent a child's religious book. My 2.5 year old son "read" this once, then- the hallmark of child delight and and something benefiting their development- repeat- read it again probably for 20 min total and probably would have started a 3rd time had we been able. Tells the story of Jesus respectfully (didn't find anything inaccurate, drawings are not cartoonish, it's just filled with love). She renders the emotions in the faces so realistically- on the page where Jesus has been taken down from the cross my 2.5 year old said "Mary is sad" Interestingly Mary is unveiled until the moment of her marriage to St. Joseph, and btw, the book presents him very well there's none of the account of his being troubled and first and contemplating putting Mary away, it simply says on the marriage page something along the lines that he knew that she was carrying God's son. If you on the fence on this one like I was for a while, just do it- get the book! This author/illustrator is amazing! Her books are treasures. edit: I have to add that my four year old, when he was pretending to say mass today, gave a "sermon" and added "I learned that from my Jesus book" (i.e. this one!) Just can't say enough about this book :)

I love this book and so does my 4 year old nephew! Often I take it to church and open it to the gospel that is being proclaimed in church. On Palm Sunday, he followed along -- Last Supper, Jesus' arrest, crucifixion .... He really "studied" the arrest and crucifixion pages and has told the story many times since -- even to playmates. The crucifixion is pictured "at a distance" so it's not gruesome or frightening -- and while the reality is both, a preschooler doesn't need to be confronted with it too graphically. On Corpus Christi the gospel was the multiplicaton of the loaves and fish -- it was in the book! Later for dinner, I placed a roll by my nephew's plate and he said, "Just like Jesus used." The pictures are "beautiful." An usher has told my nephew several times, "I really like your book."

Maite Roche's illustrations are simply wonderful: simple, colorful, kid-friendly, warm, adorable, and yet with plenty of detail! In this volume she is able to retell the life of Our Lord for children and readers will find there most of the important events of His life on this world. From the Annunciation to Pentecost, the text will lead the child to all of the highlights of Jesus' life. The main events of His life are there, and also the Sermon on the Mount, the Multiplication the Bread, and more. This super nice book will make a wonderful gift!
