If Jesus came to your house, would he be your age and height? How would you treat him? Would you give him your nicest toys and let him have the longest turn on your rocking horse?
In this simple, touching story, a young boy realizes that he can treat others according to the lessons he would learn if Jesus really did come to his house.

Sarah Rummage5 Stars Out Of 5September 6, 2010Sarah RummageI love t his little book. I had it as a child, and now today when I read it to my grandson I almost had tears in my eyes. He loved it too. I don't think its appeal will ever get old.
Roger Boudiette4 Stars Out Of 5March 28, 2009Roger BoudietteA wonderful way for kids to wonder and think about Jesus.I wonder, though, why Author and Illustrator Joan Thomas' original illustrations can't be used. Jesus has an old fashioned nightshirt type garment, but kids have good imaginations, and after all, a little mystery is OK, right? The main point is, "What would we do, if He came to my house?" Isn't it OK if His clothes look a little different?
