    Perfect young child gift - an age old classic with a new look

    It's a classic. This was one of my favorite books as a child, and my mother gave copies to each of my children when they were born. It's now a favorite baby gift of mine. I loved the simple pen and ink drawings of the original, but this version has a new look for a new century! The story is simple.... as a child, if Jesus came to your home, what would you do? Of course you would share your best toys, offer Him your favorite chair, etc. etc. And the rest of the book... ? As an adult, we know...."what you do for the least of these, you do for Me".... and so the book points out to the child that he/she can do things for other children AS IF they were in fact Jesus ...for He lives in us all. A great life lesson in a short children's book.

    A Wonderful Story

    I bought this book at my child's (3 yr old)church book fair and we love reading it together. The story tells about Jesus as if He were a small boy coming to visit and how he would treat Him: share toys, give Him flowers, talk with Him, share his fears with Him. Then it goes on to say that even though Jesus cannot come to visit him like a boy, he can treat others like he would treat Jesus: talk with Jesus in prayer, and do all the nice things that he would do for Jesus for those in need. A very sweet way to teach an important lesson about the "Golden Rule" (treat others as you would like to be treated). Beautifully illustrated, too. A nice read-aloud for ages 3 and up.

    Great for Teaching CCD

    This is a wonderful book that I had bought for my son a few years ago. He loves reading this with me. I also use it when teaching religion . The kids really enjoy this one and I think the child inside all of us wonder what it would have been like to hang out with Jesus if he were a guest or a play date at our house.

    A reviewer

    My daughter, who is now 49 years old, and I both memorized this book. We really enjoyed it each time I read it to her or when we later recited it together. Now I often give it for a baby gift and read it again before I give it away.

    Memories

    When I was a little girl my grandmother got me this book and read it to me. I've kept my copy all these years. Now as a grandmother myself, I'm so pleased to find that it is still in print and I can get my grandson his own copy.

    Perfect description of Jesus' love, written for little ones

    This book epitomizes what Jesus expects from his 'children' (including adults). It puts the heart where it needs to be. Such a common sense approach to a complex subject in terms children and adults alike can appreciate and understand.
