Book Review: "Read and Share Stories About Jesus"

Written by: Gwen Ellis and Illustrated by: Steve Smallman

This is a board book with a collection of 13 stories about Jesus's life with cute illustrations that tell the story very well.


I loved that this book is sturdy and perfect for my 2 year old to hold on her own. My 5 year old also likes this book. I like the questions at the bottom of each page that provoke the child to think about what they just heard in the story.


One of the first questions is about baptism and it wasn't completely clear in the book (with a child in mind) that baptism is NOT what gets you to Heaven. I haven't read the other Read and Share books, so I do not know if this is covered in a previous book. I wish the book was clear on salvation before it talked about baptism. Although, it could have been covered in a previous book in this series.

Other than that, I would recommend this to a friend.
