Forever With Jesus by Lee Ann Mancini, Illustrated by Dan Sharp

Forever-with-Jesus

Forever with Jesus, by Lee Ann Mancini and Illustrated by Dan Sharp, is part of the Adventures of the Sea Kids series. This is the seventh book in the award winning series that I have read and I just love them. The pictures are so colorful and in this story the illustrator has hidden a cross in the pictures for children to find. The pictures of the sea creatures are so cute!

The message in this story is that Jesus dies for our sins and if we believe in Him, we will live forever in heaven. While visiting their grandparents for their grandmother’s 80th birthday, the neighbor passes away. By reading the Bible to the little ones, the grandmother helps them to understand they do not need to fear dying and that in heaven there is no pain and suffering.

The story is written for children ages 5 to 10 but is enjoyed by younger children as well. The pages are so colorful and the stories are short enough the keep the young child’s attention. I like how the illustrator hides a cross in the pages so the children can spend time looking in the pictures to find it. I would recommend this story, and series, to those who have young children. It is a fun book to read with fun characters, yet it gives a meaningful lesson.

I received a copy of this book from the author and GLM Publishing through BookCrash. This is my honest review.
