This board book for very young children introduces them to some of God's other children and points out the differences among them. It gently encourages the young child to look beyond his immediate environment and known world and to discover more of God's creation. It also clearly identifies Jesus as Savior, who died and rose again on Easter as our Redeemer. Developed for children ages 1 to 4, this book depicts scenes and people from everyday life that will show the young reader God's wonderful creativity. The illustrations show a variety of children; the text explains that all people are created by God and that Jesus came as their Savior. Each page states a biblical truth in simple, child-friendly language and illustrates it by showing things young children will recognize and understand. This will help toddlers begin to individuate--that is, to begin to see themselves and others as separate and unique. By so doing, "Jesus Loves Me" teaches the young child to appreciate God's beautiful and varied creation and to comprehend the presence and power of Jesus in their lives. This book uses an art style that is pleasing to very young children, but incorporates it along with age-specific text to communicate the significance of Jesus' saving work in the lives of God's forgiven and redeemed children.
