I Want to be Just Like Jesus Bible Storybook, by Stephen Elkins, is a delightful book. Elkins, a songwriter, record-producer, bestselling children’s author, and father of three children, has done an excellent job of putting together a quality Bible storybook for young children.
This book is designed to help parents teach their children character lessons by encouraging them to be “Just Like Jesus.” The stories are paired with colorful illustrations that both parents and children will enjoy. Each story includes three sections: Jesus in the Bible, Jesus in Me, and a Prayer for Today. Each ends with a simple statement to sum up the lesson, such as “To be just like Jesus, I will show endurance.”
I loved this book. It is well-written, including topics such as responsibility, humility, persistence, sincerity, prayer, mercy, endurance, confidence, forgiveness, and truth. The illustrations are beautiful and very cute. I would recommend this book to anyone trying to teach young children character traits that Jesus exhibited.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
