Believe Storybook: Think, Act, Be Like Jesus by Randy Frazee

"Believe Storybook: Think, Act, Be Like Jesus" by Randy Frazee is a wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated book.  Recommended for ages 4 and up, each chapter:
  • starts with a key question (e.g. How do I best use my resources to serve God and others?),
  • includes a paraphrased story from the Old Testament (e.g. Moses asking the Israelites to help build a tabernacle using whatever skills or resources they had)
  • relates that Old Testament story to Jesus, and ties that in with a paraphrased New Testament reading (e.g. the story of the Wise Men visiting Jesus),
  • shows how Jesus is the answer and how we can be more like Him.
  •  ends with a key idea and Bible verse.

As an adult, I appreciated the effort the author took to bring the Old Testament stories and associate them with the New Testament stories about Jesus.  Also, it is a large, hardcover book, perfect to be shared with your favorite little person on your lap or seated next to you.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Book Look Bloggers in exchange for my honest opinion.
