Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus Said, "Go Tell The World," So I've Got A Job To Do (My Favorite Verses)?
A great book with solid Biblical foundation Aug 19, 2008
Part of the My Favorite Verses series, I've Got a Job to Do! was written by Dandi Daley Mackalli and features The Great Commission in the New Living Translation. Using rhyming verse, the story follows a young girl as she shares the love of Jesus and the story of salvation with everyone around her: friends, family and neighbors. The full text of Matthew 28:18-20 is given on the last page.
The illustrations by Jenny B. Harris are very colorful. The style is somewhere between paper-piecing and air brush creating a playful effect.
What I Like: The Biblical foundation, of course, is wonderful. I like that the book offers children ownership in this "job" of evangelism. The book does a great job encouraging kids to share their faith with others who need to know God.
What I Dislike: My kids (ages 3 and 4) liked the book, but they didn't really get it. The main character repeatedly says "I've got a job to do!" but it's not completely clear what that job is. Older kids may catch it the first time, but younger children, even though within the age range, may need further explanation to fully understand The Great Commission.
Overall Rating: Good! Even better for kids a little bit older.
