I read this book before reading it to the Sunday School class it was the best. We never know what children really go through in this day and age. This made them think a lot of what they write down or even think about someone. We've all be hurt in our lives, but never to the point where Jesus was uncomfortable to live in our hearts. I believe everyone who has children should buy this book and share it.

Review 2 for My Heart-Christ's Home Retold for Children - eBook
I believe this book is the best one I have ever seen or read for young children to help them to understand what it means to have a relationship with Christ. The entire narrative speaks powerfully, in a setting much like today, and on a child's level. The artwork is very good and realistic, too. I believe any Christian who has or works with young children would also really like this book! I will probably buy more copies of this one for others in the future, too. Thank you for offering it on CBD online.

Review 4 for My Heart-Christ's Home Retold for Children - eBook
This brightly illustrated kid's book is a re-make of the classic booklet My Heart - Christ's Home and is just as wonderful.I immediately was drawn to this book due it's bold colors and soft, yet realistic, pictures. The storyline catches your attention from the beginning and walks children through several days in the normal life of an elementary age child.The story it's self is a picture of what it's like when Jesus lives in your heart. It illustrates how Jesus loves us, is there for us, and forgives our sin when we confess it to Him. My oldest really enjoyed the story, but my younger two - 5 & 3 - had a harder time making the connection with the allegory.I highly recommend this book for older children - let's say 6-years-old and up - for it's great content and ability to start a conversation about Jesus living within your heart. As you read about Peter and see how Jesus is with him at home, at school, at play, at night...your children will grasp how Jesus is with them every moment, too.* * * * *This review copy was provided courtesy of IVP Books but the opinions expressed are my own.
