|I Believe in Jesus Too by Mark S. Nielsen
~Published by Deseret Book February 2012
Four of my children snuggled on the couch with me to read I Believe in Jesus Too by Mark S. Nielsen. We love the beautiful illustrations and the simply, yet powerful message.
The book focuses on the fact that children all over the world believe in Jesus. The pages go on to tell how children the world over go to church, read scriptures, say prayers and get baptized.
It was fun to see what my kids said as we looked through the book. For instance, my five year old daughter asked, "Where is Jesus in the book?" Then she flipped to the front cover and said, "Oh, they are all looking at Him!".
When we opened the cover, the inside shows a map of the world with photos of children from all over who believe in Jesus. My ten-year old noticed that Hawaii is not shown on the map. When I looked closer, I could see a faint outline of what I think is Hawaii, but I was amazed at how observant children can be.
With it's sweet message and lovable illustrations, I Believe in Jesus Too will be a lovely addition to your family's library.
