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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
