5 Stars Out Of 5

The Concordia series, "Things I See..." has been a real winner at our house - We love "Things I See at Christmas", too. Simple text for very young children details what is seen at church. I got this to help explain baptism for preschooler and our new baby. We are Wisconsin Synod Lutheran, so it is pretty consistant with what we see at church (except the pastor's clerical collar). For my child this is very relatable, but I think these books would be ideal for even much younger children who are just getting into books. Of course this one is about baptism, but also how Jesus calls us and teaches us at church. Regarding baptism, besides baby in Christening gown on front, it it shows baptismal font (Jesus Saves Me), parents with infant, sponsors, and pastor at font (Jesus provides for me) and a baby getting baptized into God's family by sprinkling of water on the head (In the name of God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I am baptized!). This would make an excellent christening gift to help little ones understand the importance of their own baptism.
