The Story of Jesus, My Best Friend is a five book
series of the teachings of Jesus for children
5 - 9 years. Attractively illustrated, and set
in simple rhyme, it will be something you and
your child will cherish for years to come.
The Story of Jesus, My Best Friend, Book One:
Creation presents a simple introduction
for young children, ages 5 - 9, of the Old
Testament Creation story, to prepare them for
the Story of Jesus, My Best Friend in the books
The Story of Jesus, My Best Friend, Book Two: Jesus the
Child presents to children ages 5 - 9 the sequence
of events in the life of Jesus from His Birth in
Bethlehem, to the Passover Feast in Jerusalem that
Jesus attended when He was twelve years old.
The Story of Jesus, My Best Friend, Book Three: Early
Ministry of Jesus is for children ages 5 - 9 and
covers the beginning of Jesus’ public life at age
thirty to His first Miracle at the Wedding feast in
In The Story of Jesus, My Best Friend, Book Four: Jesus,
Teacher and Role Model, I have selected some of
Jesus’ core teachings and actions occurring between
the events of His earlier ministry (covered in Book
Three) and the events of His Passion, Death and
Resurrection (covered in Book Five).
In The Story of Jesus, My Best Friend, Book Five: Jesus’
Passion and Death, Resurrection and Ascension,
I have selected the key and essential events of
Jesus’ final days on earth. From His warning
disciples of His upcoming suffering and death,
to His glorious resurrection and ascension.
To help children hear and enjoy the lyrical cadence
in the rhymed Biblical Text for each book, hopefully
inspiring them to eventually recite the rhymed
text along with me, I have created eight iMovies
of the five books, breaking up the longer books
4 and 5 into three shorter presentations.
"My son was enchanted by 'Two by Two'. He studied each page very carefully and internalized each lesson. It has become a story time favorite." - Becky G.
Two by Two and How they Grew by Jacqueline McNeil is a collection of six rhymed narratives, suitable for children of second or third grade. In each story, a different set of children with opposite personalities take center stage and become involved in a universal classroom conflict which they eventually resolve, with minimal help from the teacher, who is always present, but usually in the background. In this way, the natural wisdom of each child emerges and resolves the particular dilemma in a refreshing, satisfying manner.
A FUN experience, yet if parents or teachers wish to engage their children in dialogue about one or all of the stories, the basic values inherent in each narrative provide that opportunity.
