Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus Hears Me?
Love This Book May 25, 2010
I bought this for my son when he was less than a year old, and we still read it regularly. It's quick & simple (good for little ones) with a beautiful message. I bought a copy for my niece last Christmas, and they love it, too. Sometimes it's hard to find religious books that are short enough for the youngest ones to sit through, but I've been very pleased with this one.
Sweet book about prayer; best for toddlers May 12, 2009
The text of this book, written in simple rhyme, reminds children that Jesus hears our prayers wherever we are, no matter what we're doing. After explaining that Jesus hears us in the day, when we play, far away, in the month of May, etc., the book turns toward why Jesus hears us: because He loves us. the text explains "He died to take my sins away." The book concludes with a child thanking Jesus for loving us so much.
What I Like: This book is small and sturdy, perfect for taking along in the diaper bag. The illustrations (except those of Jesus) are really cute! I like that it doesn't teach a memorized prayer, but rather teaches children that God loves us and wants to hear from us without undue pomp and circumstance.
What I Dislike: The last few pages (those about Jesus dying for our sins) seem disconnected to the rest of the book. It feels like an abrupt change. Also, I don't like the illustrations of Jesus. There are two: one of Him on the cross and another of Him ascending in the clouds.
Overall Rating: I'm on the fence between rating this "Good" and "Very Good." My kids (5 and almost 4)are at the top of the suggested age range, so this book didn't strike a loud chord with us. However, I think younger kids would really enjoy it. I recommend it for 3 and under.

cute book for toddlers Mar 4, 2009
I bought this book for my grandson, who is shy of 2 years old. He likes the pictures and can easily turn the thick, cardboard type pages.
