Reviews

What a sweet book! My toddler loves the rhyming couplets and imaginative pictures and I love that she's hearing about Jesus. When she's older, I hope it helps her begin to understand that God knows everything we feel because he became fully man, starting as a little boy. When I'm not reading it aloud to her, I find her carrying it around and leafing through the pages on her own. What a wonderful book to add to our collection!

-Donna M. Kees, bookstore manager, Northland Church Bookstore The one-verse commentary on the childhood of Jesus found in Luke 2:52 stirs my imagination! What was life like for the Son of God as He lived His young life on earth? When Jesus was a Little Boy helps to satisfy my curiosity! It's a good read for young children who know Jesus and want to be more like Him.

-Barb Olson You know you've read a good book when you finish the last page and have made a friend. Children will find a dear friend in When Jesus Was a Little Boy. It's a great book!

-David J. Koetje, President/CEO, Christian Schools International What a delightful book to help young children connect with Jesus in a personal way. Often it's that first emotional connection that helps kids fall in love with Jesus. Dr. McCombs has created a wonderful book for parents to introduce Jesus to their children.
