Jesus My Friend
Following the success of the Jesus and Me Every Day devotional books, Eira Reeves has written and beautifully illustrated a 32-page book introducing 3- to 6-year-olds to Jesus as their very Special Friend.
A young girl, Lily, introduces us to her family and friends, then explains in simple terms why Jesus is so important to her as a Special Friend who loves her, forgives her and is always with her. Using language readily understood by toddlers and young children, creation, the Fall, the birth, life, miracles, death and resurrection of Jesus are summarised and colourfully illustrated. Lily, the narrator, then describes how it is possible to know Jesus today - through talking to Him, reading about Him in the Bible, being with other Christians at church and through the Holy Spirit.
The book concludes with an invitation for the child to join the worldwide family of Jesus by saying a simple prayer of commitment.
