I Want to be Just Like Jesus by Stephen Elkins (Tyndale Kids)


Christian parents have the mission of instructing our children in the Word of God. That means we need to set a time every day to read the Bible and pray with them. If you already have a Bible for kids, good for you and keep reading it to your children. However, Bibles for kids present a small inconvenient; they only provide few Bible stories and most of the Bibles for kids include the same stories.

I want to present an alternative to Bible for kids without losing the spiritual component. Bible storybooks provide you with the best of Bible stories with applications for your children. “I Want to be Just Like Jesus” contains forty daily readings based on the character and attitude Jesus showed when he was in the world. For example: Jesus was dependent, Jesus was Humble, Jesus was faithful, and many other lessons children can learn from the Lord.

Every daily reading is divided into four sections. The first contains a Bible verse related to the topic of that day. The second page is entitled “Jesus in the Bible” and contains a short summary of the verse presented on the first page of the section. The third page is entitled “Jesus in me” and is an application that teach your children to apply the attribute or characteristic he or she has learned that day. Finally, page four contains a short prayer your children can repeat or event memorize.

Graphics are very well developed and include children figures and characters so they may feel identified with the story. The hard cover feels strong and resistant so you can be confident this book is going to resist children manipulation.

I would like to highly recommend this book to all the parents who are committed to daily read Christian books to their children. For those who are not, this is a wonderful book to introduce your children to the spiritual disciplines of daily Bible reading and prayer. I hope you enjoy it.

I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
