Get to know Jesus by Nancy I. Sanders
The book has 10 chapters in all, beginning with a chapter called "The Important Plan" which explains how we know the Bible is true. It goes on to explain where Jesus grew up, and the difference between Romans and Jews. Next we learn about Jesus' lineage and how the Bible tells us who Jesus' grandparents and great-grandparents were, all the way back to Adam and Eve.
Throughout the rest of the book. we see maps of where Jesus lived, learn about the 12 disciples and learn about Jesus' death and resurrection. Definitions are included for big words and names, and there are small facts (Eyewitness Account, Bible Heroes, and Did You Know?) throughout the chapters.
I think this Biography is perfect for kids ages 5-10. There is so much information packed into this little book! I plan to use it this Fall with my 8 year old, as a Bible supplement for school. Chapters are short, so reading could be divided into multiple days or lessons. I loved that there were many colored pictures of maps, historical landmarks, and common household items and what they looked like back then.
I cannot say enough positive comments about this book. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to show it to my kiddos! I rate this book as 5 stars!
