This book contains 40 days of readings to help young children learn more about Jesus. For each day there is a Bible verse, question, and short story. The Bible verses come from different versions of the Bible. The different readings are based on the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
The language is easy enough for toddlers to understand and simple enough for younger readers. The illustrations are subtle, but realistic, and come off the page.

About the Illustrator-
Jane Heyes currently lives in the South of France. She has established her own publishing company. Her artwork has been in children’s books, ceramics, textiles, wall art, and more.
I liked the story, Bible verses, and questions in this book. I feel that David did a good job of including the most important parts of Jesus’s life.
I thought that the illustrations were subtle, but captivating. They will keep a young child interested while the short story is being read to them. You’ll want to make sure you have your Bible on hand, because you might need it to answer some of the questions. Your young child might have more questions about the story as well.
There are some of the stories that you might want to add to, because there just wasn’t enough space for David to add enough information. Those readings that needed more involved the end of Jesus’s life on this Earth.
I enjoyed reading the text and looking at the illustrations in this book. I think the young children in your life would like it too.
