What I Like: The concept is joyful, putting flesh on a character seldom seen as normal. While it is important for children to understand Jesus is not a normal person, they must also understand that He lived a normal life here on earth; He felt the same things we feel and encountered the same trials we face -- even as a child. I applaud the author for presenting Christ in such a personal light and encouraging children to do the same. Furthermore, the illustrations are fantastic! I can almost hear the Christ-child laughing and taste the fresh peach He picks from the orchard. The book is delightful.
What I Dislike: Nothing.
