Children’s Corner — Little Jesus, Little Me

4 Oct

Jesus was a baby just like me.

Jesus learned to walk one step at a time just like me.

Jesus once was a little child too! With sweet and simple text and colorful illustrations, helps your child learn to connect with Jesus at an early age and learn about God’s great love. Perfect for parents and grandparents to share with children, this book will soon become a favorite for your little one!

Doris Rikkers is a freelance writer and editor who has written many bestselling children’s books and Bibles. Although she loves the ocean, she lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, surrounded by her books, her flower gardens, and her family and friends.

Lizzie Walkley graduated with a degree in illustration in 2004 and has been lucky enough to have had a career as an illustrator ever since. Working in-house for greeting card companies for 10 years has taught her to be adaptable in style as well as the importance of sticking to briefs and working to tight deadlines. Since going freelance and joining Advocate in 2014, Lizzie has enjoyed working on a wide variety of projects, from children’s book and greetings card illustration to toy designing. She is hard working, reliable and endeavours to communicate at all stages of the brief. She works from her home studio in Gloucestershire and has a nice man and a little girl.

My Impressions:

Little Jesus, Little Me is a great way to introduce your child to the concept of Jesus being just them, fully human, while being God’s Son. I loved the parallel illustrations — the left hand page depicting Jesus and the right hand page depicting children of all races — showing how similar contemporary children are to Jesus who live long ago. Simple illustrations in muted colors are just right for the littlest reader. Perfect for bedtime, Little Jesus, Little Me will be an often requested book by your child or grandchild.
