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.
