“The child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the favor of God was upon him.”– Luke 2:40 Interest Level: 2-6 Review and Comments: When Jesus Was a Little Boy is a story that describes what Jesus might have done as a child. Each page shows Jesus actively participating in chores around the house, learning lessons, taking care of animals, and always doing his best. There are also examples of Jesus being a true and loving friend while interacting with other children. All of these activities are perfect examples of “little acts of holiness” as St. Therese of Lisieux called them, which children can imitate to become more like Jesus. This story shows how the holy family, the model for all families, exemplifies how to love and respect others. The pictures are colorful and present Jesus as the central figure on each page. Mary is also a prominent figure throughout Jesus’ story. My favorite page is “When Jesus was a little boy, He loved his mother so.” Possible Issues: There are no issues with this book. Further Activities: • Draw a picture of Jesus and yourself doing something together such as: playing at a park, swimming, or eating together. Or make a list of activities you would like to do with Jesus. • Make a list of Jesus’ qualities you would like to imitate such as: helpfulness, kindness, or obedience, etc. Pick one idea from your list and consciously try to practice it each day – taking one day at a time. • Draw a picture of the holy family. • Locate Egypt, Israel, and Nazareth on a world map. Locate where you live on the map. Christian Resources: The Holy Family Prayer JESUS, Son of God and Son of Mary, bless our family. Graciously inspire in us the unity, peace,…read-more
