Item description for Life of Our Lord for Children, A by Marigold Hunt...
Overview Marigold Hunt begins with Adam and Eve and goes quickly through the Old Testament to Jesus, whom she presents simply but not trivially, so children encounter Him in His goodness, His suffering, and His majesty. Hunt speaks in words and phrases that young children understand and explains terms they may not know. She includes devotions from the Bible (such as the Magnificat, the Beatitudes, and the Canticle of Zachary) along with many of Christ's parables (which she explains). A Life of Our Lord for Children will make sense of Scripture for your children and help them be more attentive during Mass when they hear the same tales directly from the Gospels.

Reviews - What do customers think about Life of Our Lord for Children, A?
The whole family will enjoy this! Feb 23, 2008
I was blessed to have received "A Life of Our Lord for Children" as a gift to read to my children. They are always eager for me to read from this book, and I have found that I have learned a few things myself. Marigold Hunt writes in a way to make it easy for the young children to grasp the content, but without boring my older children either (ages 3-11). I recently gave this book to another family as a gift, so that they can be blessed too.
Another great book Oct 30, 2007
Here is another great book for kids that brings the life of Our Lord alive for them. My kids love this book too and it is one that they have re-read over again.
A child's introduction to the Gospels Dec 20, 2004
I was so pleased to find this book. Though written in 1939, the language is clear and straight-forward and accessible. On the back is a note from the author - I assume it was originally a preface. Hunt writes, "....The reason the same story takes so much longer to tell in this book is that the men who wrote the Gospels just went straight on and hardly even stopped to explain anything. They couldn't be expected to know how differently we would live, and that we would have forgotten how people dressed and spoke and built their houses, and the other customs they had in those days. So in this book, I have to stop and explain all the time, but after you have read it, a good deal of the explaining will have been done, and you can start reading the Gospels yourself anytime you want." Well, my own kiddo has renewed her interest in the Bible after just a few pages with this book. Its retelling is gentle and warm, and the artwork is just enough to lend interest. The illustrator is Ted Schluenderfritz (that's 14 letters in that there name, folks, and typing all that just goes to prove his artwork for this book is worth taking note of!) A portfolio of his work can be seen at www.5sparrows.com This is an excellent book for reading aloud to pre-K's up to young readers. It shines as a religious ed. text for homeschoolers in early to mid elementary.
