Today, I come before you all to share a review on a new book by Graham Blanchard Publishing. You all might recall I began reviewing for them August 2015. When I first found out about GBP, I wanted to get my hands on one of their kids’ books. They looked amazing. I didn’t know if I would ever be given an opportunity to review for them again, but I just loved the design behind their children’s books.
We serve a God who provides, because today I have the opportunity to share my thoughts on this book – and – why I would recommend it!
Not only have I received a copy, I get the opportunity to g i v e – a w a y a copy of this handy children’s book!!
From the “Knowing My God” Series
Jesus Helps Me is a children’s board book designed to help our kids (from birth to 7 years of age) learn about the love and help of our Savior Jesus. Because of the way it is written and formatted, it will reach age gaps that are hard to navigate. That is one of the assets of her board books. Even though the developmental differences between a baby and early school age child are so different, they have found a way to include a wide range of ages to reach our children.
Up until seven years of age, our children are growing. Not only physically or emotionally, they are growing spiritually. We need to focus on how to meet all of our children’s needs, as the grow ups in their lives (whether you are a parent, aunt, caregiver, etc). The one need we often neglect is their spiritual needs. It’s the one we don’t often think about, as caregivers (to learn more, I recommend “Spiritual Parenting in the First Five Years”).
This is a children’s book that will lead our children to develop their own knowledge and trust in their Savior Jesus Christ!
Jesus Helps Me (And You too!)
While the book offers biblical truth, they use the right words and beautiful pictures to describe the beauty of knowing God through His Son Jesus. It is done in such a way that it will excite your child to read and learn about God as their helper.
“… But your heart can believe in Him and know Him. He sent His Son to help you…”
Author Callie Grant, provides a book filled with such truths that you will want to get your hands on this book. It’s not just a children’s book. Rather, it’s an instrument to fuel your children’s faith in Christ. This book, Jesus Helps Me, reaches our children’s level. It is designed to reach a variety of developmental levels. It is colorful. It is beautifully illustrated. It takes what our kids know and see, and helps them understand the heart of God. It takes John 12:44-47, and shares the truth of the Word – piece by piece.
An Added Feature::
At the end of the book, the author provides helpful tips to give the adults the training to know the best way to utilize this book in their child’s life. This is a book that will help us to lay seeds in our children’s lives of who God is and how He wants to help them. Knowing how to best utilize this book, will provide grow ups with the right approach to get the maximum use out of the book.
For example) While a toddler may grasp the truth most by utilizing the pictures, an older child can better grasp the truth of the Scripture by asking questions and talking about the truth of Jesus’ words.
