Carine MacKenzie, author of many books for children, has written this engaging, yet biblically accurate, book about Jesus as a child. Part of the Bible Alive series, this book retells the Bible’s narrative about the life of Christ from His birth to age twelve. The final page of the book includes the Scripture references upon which the story is based. This book is well illustrated and colorful—yet without any pictures of Jesus—and is understandable by most first and second graders.
This series goes through the key elements of the life of Jesus—his teachings, his miracles, the healings, the stories, the birth, death and resurrection. Excellent illustrations by Jeff Anderson capture the people and places of the time. Different angles and imaginative picture compositions take the child straight into the Bible story. See the stories as Jesus may well have seen them actually happen. Be in the middle of the crowd, look in through the stable door, watch from the roof of a Bethlehem house as the shepherds run through the town telling everyone they meet that The Saviour of the World has been born!
