Reviews - What do customers think about If Jesus Walked Beside Me?
a great gift and great tool Feb 17, 2006
Jill Roman Lord has written a wonderful book for 4- to 8-year-olds using the premise "If Jesus was with me all the time, here is how I would act and feel." The ending teaches that the "if" statement is true: Jesus is always with us. Using real-life examples, such as playing baseball, dealing with cruelty, and being sick, Jill shows kids that they don't need to be afraid. They can rely on Jesus to help them through. My daughter, who is currently learning to ride her bike, especially likes the example of how Jesus helps you get back on and ride even after you fall.
Renee Graef's illustrations are warm and friendly and add to the comforting message of the book. I recommend If Jesus Walked Beside Me. It makes a great gift and a great tool to teach kids-yours or someone else's-that Jesus walks beside us every moment of every day.
More of the Best! Feb 11, 2006
Jill Roman Lord and Renee Graef have teamed up again to produce a great board book for kids and the adults who read to them! A child needs someone to put an arm around them. Someone to trust. Jill Lord portrays Jesus as that Someone. Graef `s stunning yet whimsical illustrations bring the words to life. Whether bike riding for the first time or trying to hit a baseball, every child needs encouragement to keep at it when things get tough. Name-calling, sickness, and failure can especially hinder a vulnerable child. This board book reminds us that when Jesus walks beside us there is comfort and peace.
