Get to Know Jesus... a great biography for kids!
I've found a great new series to use as part of our homeschool curriculum this year. The first book in the Get to Know Series from Zondervan is a unique biography about Jesus, the son of God. My 8 year old daughter reads her bible (we have the New International Readers Version which I highly recommend!) but has been asking how to know Jesus better, so I jumped at the chance to review this book. Get to Know Jesus really shows the reader what life was like for Jesus. It's a little over 100 pages, the perfect length for my 4th graders. It focuses on Jesus' life and character using color photographs, maps, and other visual resources to tell the whole story, young biography fans will come to learn more about this man of the God and the role he plays in history. Featuring a bibliography and scriptural references throughout, this is sure to become a favorite for young readers and for first book reports. I am so eager to get our hands on the rest of the series!
Special thanks to the wonderful people at Booksneeze for providing us with this book to review!
