Engaging Stories and Artwork

The I Will Follow Jesus Bible Storybook was written by Judah and his wife Chelsea Smith for parents who desire to help their children follow Jesus.  (Judah is the New York Times bestselling author of Jesus Is: Find a New Way to Be Human).  It features 29 Old Testament stories and 31 stories from the New Testament, beautifully illustrated by Alexandra Ball.  The artwork features multi-cultural families from today’s time, as well as traditional Bible story pictures.  I believe artwork is so important in children’s books to help kids understand the story.  The illustrations in this book should also aid in applying the story to today’s circumstances, too.

…we centered our efforts on helping kids see a loving Jesus who is smiling at them. Our desire is to translate the gospel for children in a way that they can grasp, to help them grow in their faith from a young age, and to inspire them to follow this Jesus for the rest of their lives!  ~ From the Letter to Parents, by Judah and Chelsea Smith

Helping children trust and love God were two of the author’s goals in writing this book.  The I Will Follow Jesus Bible Storybook can also function as a devotional – many of the stories have practical applications written into the text.  Written for children ages 4 – 8, this book can be a wonderful way to introduce young children to the stories of the Bible and Biblical truth.  How comforting it is – for both children and adults alike – to know that our Creator God loves us and cares what happens to us!

At the end of the book is a simple paragraph to help you lead your child to Christ.  This is a beautiful book, and I recommend it for families with young ones!
