Customer Reviews for Bethany House In Jesse's Shoes

Bethany House In Jesse's Shoes

As a parent, you hope your child will be sensitive to those with special needs or disabilities, but that's not always the case. Author Beverly Lewis-herself the adoptive mother of children with disabilities-and illustrator Laura Nikiel have created a sensitive, realistic story that you can share with your child to help them understand that a physical or mental "disability," while making someone different, doesn't mean they are unworthy of friendship and respect.

Every parent should have their child read this book. I have a grandson that is mentally challenged and children at school pick on him and even his younger brother gets upset with him and says things he should not say. I bought it for my younger grandson to read so he would stop calling his brother stupid. I read it before giving it to him and I was really moved by it. There is too much bulling going on in schools these days and it needs to stop.

Great to have for all elementary age children. Excellent to teach children not to stare or make fun of, but to permit the special child to join in when able. This sensitive and yet very realistic story teaches children to understand and befriend a special needs child. This great also for anyone in the Pediatric field who works with special needs children, brings a tear to the eye. There are other types of special needs children this only hit the "icing on the cake" and sure could use more stories like these for the other children.

This story is timeless. It is told in a way only Lewis can tell, and has such a powerful message for our children - and for us.In a fast paced world where nobody has time for "different," these children learn that sometimes different is good, and can bless you beyond your dreams.As a mother of 4 children all under 12, I plan on reading In Jesse's Shoes to my children again and again. And I plan on spending some time talking to them about kindness, compassion, and acceptance. About walking in someone elses shoes before you judge or mock them.Sometimes the BEST surprises come in the most unlikely packages. Like finding a great book in a brown box at the post office, or discovering love and compassion in a brother with special needs. Trish BergAuthor, Book Reviewer
