I Believe in Jesus Too + GIVEAWAY - Mark Nielsen


Illustrated by Craig Stapley

Keep reading, because we are giving away an autographed copy of this book!

Summary: All around the world, Latter-day Saint children go to church, sing songs, pray, read scriptures, participate in family home evening, and get baptized. We may meet in different types of buildings or speak different languages, but we have a lot in common. Why? Because no matter where we live, we all love and believe in Jesus, and He loves each one of us just the same. Are you like Pablo, Dimitri, Bayani, Junpei, and Shamara? Do you believe in Jesus too?  (Summary/image from deseretbook.com - Book given free for an honest review)

My Review:  When I Believe in Jesus Too arrived in my mailbox, my girls were delighted to open a book they felt was written just for them – the “Mormon” kids.  You see, we live in central Washington and my girls are the only members of our church in each of their grades. Sometimes, I think this wears on them and they feel a little alone in their faith. It was touching to watch them pour over the beautiful pages, and discover what life is like for the youth of the church in various parts of the world.  They especially loved the easy-to-read map in the front that allowed them to find where each child lived.

I Believe in Jesus Too shows young Latter-Day Saints that despite the rich diversity of this world-wide religion, they are brought together through their shared beliefs and the gospel of Jesus Christ.   

My Rating: 4.25 Stars

Sum it up:  I Believe in Jesus Too pairs visually striking artwork with a powerful message of unity, diversity, and love and is a wonderful read aloud book for young Latter-day Saint children.

Kaisa, age 8, says:  I love that book because it was written by an LDS man for LDS kids.  I also liked it because of the pictures – how  they were painted but looked real.  I liked how they talked about different people and how they go to church too.  I’d give it the highest points of stars you can give it!

Sophie, age 6, says:  I like it because it talks about how people pray and read scriptures and go to church on Sunday and get baptized.  My favorite part is the pictures.  It’s really a beautiful book!

( Here's an examples of the gorgeous illustrations they are raving about...  )
