“The Light” is the first of sixteen books in “The Jesus Series” for 4-5 year olds to read themselves. Books 1-8 in the series focus on what Jesus said about Himself, shown in John’s gospel. This book teaches that Jesus is the light of the world.
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 am the light of the world” John, chapter 8, verse 12
They are also asked to use a replica diamond to explain that just as a diamond has many sides, so God has many names to show what He is like.
Book 1, “The Light”, introduces the letter sound A/a, 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.
