My thoughts-

I loved My Little Life of Jesus,  by Karen Williamson.  It is the perfect book to teach young children about Jesus.  I liked the map which showed where Jesus lived, the fun illustrations, and the references to the verses in the Bible.

The one concern I had about this book was that it showed Peter and John finding the tomb and there was nothing about Mary and the women going to the tomb first.  I would have preferred having the women first, but I did think it was very neat to have the men included.  I have never read a picture book which included Peter and John.  It is a good thing to teach to young children.

I think this is the perfect read aloud book for families with young children.  Older children could read it to younger children and they would all learn something.  I recommend My Little Life of Jesus to all families.
