Just Like Jesus Bible Storybook Review

The Just Like Jesus Bible Storybook, written by Stephen Elkins, will inspire your children to model good character through the example set forth by Jesus when He lived on this Earth. In this collection of Bible stories, the character of Jesus is modeled through the lessons He taught and the life He lived. Each story highlights lessons on character for your children to model such as sharing with others, being patient, being kind, being content, giving thanks and more.

Each story includes pages for the following:
  • A character trait of Jesus and a corresponding Scripture.
  • A "Jesus in the Bible" story. The character of Jesus is shown in how He handled specific situations throughout each story shared in this book.
  • "Jesus in Me" - Children are inspired to model the character of Jesus they read about in the Bible story. This is where they learn how to apply the character trait in their own lives.
  • A short prayer - The lesson is closed with a short prayer so the children can ask God for help in developing the character of Jesus that they learned about in the story.
  • A call to action where the children verbalize what they will do in order to be just like Jesus. (Example: To be like Jesus, I will be thankful.)

The adorable colored illustrations in the Just Like Jesus Bible Storybook are so beautiful and inviting! The padded hardcover is sturdy which is great for active hands who are not always so gentle with books. There are 176 pages total, including a table of contents that lists each of the 40 character traits of Jesus that your children will learn about in this storybook. The author has even included a note to parents and grandparents. The stories are written in a conversational style that will be easy for your children or grandchildren to understand. 

It's a perfect devotional book for small children ages 4-7 with the help and guidance of a parent or grandparent. There is plenty of interaction that can take place in each story's lesson, leading to a wonderful time of discussion between a parent/grandparent and child.

We all want our children to have good character. There is no one better for them to learn good character from than through Jesus!

I'm so excited to be able to read the Just Like Jesus Storybook with my little grandson as he grows. It's never to early to begin teaching your children or grandchildren about the character of Jesus and how they can too can live by His example.

Walking in His Grace, 

I received a review copy from Tyndale House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review, and the options I have expressed are my own.
