Get to Know Mary

In the past few weeks, I have had the pleasure of reviewing a series of books by Nancy I. Sanders. I am simply IN LOVE with this series.

I reviewed Get to Know Jesus a few weeks back. You can read my review here.  

I was then asked to review the Get to Know Paul book by the same author. You can read my review of that book here. 

This week I received the Get to Know Mary book, and I am so excited that I have had the opportunity to put three of these beautiful books into our library.

I think this series of book is perfect for my 5 and 6 year old boys. I even think my 3 year old daughter will be able to glean some knowledge and enjoy reading it with me. While the boys cannot read this on their own yet, I believe that it will be a great book for us to read through together and really discuss and learn.

Mary was more than just a girl growing up in Israel. She was chosen by God to be the mother of Jesus! This book allows children and adults alike to learn about the life and times of this brave young woman and how she became a hero of the Bible. The book begins with her life in the House of Jacob and follows through to her engagement, the birth of her son and travels with her all the way to death of her firstborn son.

The book and pages are sturdy and colorful. It is well organized with great color photos. This is sure to become a favorite for young readers and for first book reports!

BookLook Bloggers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest and truthful review.
