Editorial Reviews

"What a delightful book to help young children connect with Jesus in a personal way. Often it's that first emotional connection that helps kids fall in love with Jesus. Dr. McCombs has created a wonderful book for parents to introduce Jesus to their children."
Dr. Scott Turansky, cofounder, National Center for Biblical Parenting

"I found When Jesus Was a Little Boy a delightful read with my inquisitive young grandchildren.  The words bring the young Jesus to life.  The rhyme, rhythm and colorful illustrations create an appetite for the child to want to read it again and again."
David J. Koetje, President/CEO, Christian Schools International

"You know you've read a good book when you finish the last page and have made a friend. Children will find a dear friend in When Jesus Was a Little Boy. It's a great book! "
Becky Hunter, pastor's wife, grandmother, and former teacher

"When Jesus Was a Little Boy is filled with very fun and understandable words and beautiful illustrations for children about Jesus when he was little!  It gives great insight into thoughts that children have about Jesus and draws great parallels to their life situations. Also, it teaches Biblical concepts in a way that is fun and meaningful for children. A must have for every child's bookshelf!"
Barb Olson

"The one-verse commentary on the childhood of Jesus found in Luke 2:52 stirs my imagination!  What was life like for the Son of God as He lived His young life on earth?  When Jesus was a Little Boy helps to satisfy my curiosity!  It's a good read for young children who know Jesus and want to be more like Him."
Faith Dugan

"This is a sweet story by Margi. I know her heart is on every one of these pages and I can see it in every word. The beautiful message of inclusion is so needed in our world today. Thank you for this great addition to our children's department."
Donna M. Kees, bookstore manager, Northland Church Bookstore

"What a sweet book!  My toddler loves the rhyming couplets and imaginative pictures and I love that she's hearing about Jesus.  When she's older, I hope it helps her begin to understand that God knows everything we feel because he became fully man, starting as a little boy. When I'm not reading it aloud to her, I find her carrying it around and leafing through the pages on her own. What a wonderful book to add to our collection!"
Janette Obermueller
