Review:

This book is aimed at ages 0-4 and is a lovely, colorful book to remind children that Jesus (and God) are always with them.It's an enjoyable book, perfect for reading out loud any time of the day, and kids will be in love with the lovely illustrations, that also offer some Summer learning, like counting the red flowers on a page. It would also be a lovely boo to give to a child that is being baptized as a toddler/preschooler.

About the Illustrator

Hello! From a very young age I made absolutely everything into miniature books, sometimes with no purpose at all other than to hold the tiniest book in the world in my hand! In 2007 I graduated with a first class BA (Hons) degree in illustration and since then have illustrated for picture books, children's magazines, wedding invitations, logo design, website design, pattern design and hand-lettered typography. I love working with an array of materials, most often gouache, acrylic, coloured pencil and collage to create warm and friendly illustrations. I also sometimes use a bit of Photoshop, although I try not to make it too obvious... I love all things 1920s and am particularly inspired by the nostalgic childhood innocence of the books of AA Milne and Enid Blyton. I grew up in the beautiful countryside of Suffolk, spent the last ten years in lovely Lincolnshire and have recently relocated to the sunny Sussex coast with my lovely husband!

  1. My daughter talks about how Jesus Lives in her heart, she is very young so when saying prayers she just kind of follows after what I say.

  11. When they go outsides they say thank you for different animals, birds etc. they see. And sometimes they say sorry out loud when they have done something wrong.
