    What a sweet thought for young ones--what WOULD you do if Jesus came to your house for the day? The book presents an idea of a fun day with boy Jesus, and then, more importantly, because Jesus won't be coming in exactly that way, how is Jesus with me, and what can a young one do to serve others so that Jesus himself would be pleased? A lovely book!

    I 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.

    A 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?
