God Sent Jesus is ninth of sixteen books in The Jesus Series for 4-5 year olds to read themselves. Books 9-16 in the series focus on the things Jesus came to do, based on Isaiah 61:1-2 and Luke 4:16-21.
There are various ways for adults to help a child reading this book. They are encouraged to help the child memorise the Bible verse and its reference:
“I came to do what the Father wants me to do. He sent me.” John, chapter 6, verse 38
On each page of this book there is a part for an adult to read (in small print), along with a sentence printed in larger type for a child to read. It is recommended that the adult reads their part first, and then the child, so that a shared reading experience is developed.
They are also asked to use a replica diamond to explain that just as a diamond has many sides, so Jesus has many names to show what he is like.
Book 9, God Sent Jesus, majors on the letters I & J, and offers help with writing the letter, as well as giving suggested activities, reading tips, charts to aid recall, and sight vocabulary words that children need to read the book.
“God Sent Jesus” is the ninth of sixteen books in “The Jesus Series”.
