Erin Lowmaster5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Character Study!July 14, 2014Erin LowmasterQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Get to Know Jesus is part of the A Biography For Kids series by Nancy I. Sanders. The book is a little over 100 pages long and an excellent resource for children ages five to ten years old that are aiming to learn more about people from the Bible. I plan on using this book and the others in the series as part of our Bible studies during our home schooling but imagine it would be excellent to read as is as well as to be used in a church classroom setting.
There are 12 chapters in this biography. The chapters cover the important plan, the birth of Jesus, miracles, and more. There are 4-color maps and numerous photos excellent for visual learners. In the front of the book, there's a key that informs readers and teachers to get to know how to use this book. There are icons such as a oil lamp to direct you to read a scripture from the Bible, a clay jar icon that features fun facts, a word bank that introduces biblical words and definition perhaps not known to a child before, and more. A personal favorite of mine is the time line near the back of the book which can tie well into other history studies. The visual appeal is quite high and the book is written in a way children can understand easily.
Overall, this is an excellent biography and would be a great book to use for book reports, casual reading, or character studies. Children can see literally thanks to the maps and color photos wear Jesus walked, they'll learn about His family tree, briefly be introduced to the feasts commonly celebrated by the Jews, and other important information.
I'm excited to go through the Life of Jesus with my daughter this upcoming school year. She's 6 and has looked through the book a bit on her own and she's pretty excited too.

A few weeks ago I had an opportunity to review the Apostle Paul-part of the Get to Know series. As soon as I had finished and posted that review, I requested Jesus-part of the Get to Know series. It is wonderful! I love this series of biographies for children! I love the maps, photos, and artwork. I love the included background information. I love the definitions. I love the sections on Bible Trivia, eyewitness accounts, and information on Bible heroes. There is even a color timeline in the back of the book (there is a small error in this timeline: a BC where there should be an AD on the approximate date of Jesus' baptism.) This little biography is packed full of information on the life and times of Jesus. I love this series and look forward to reading more in the future!
