Jesus and the Children book. Cecil and Friends from author Andrew McDonough looks like it will be a great series full of adventure and valuable scripture lessons. I think the colors and images are vibrant and there is just enough of a story to start a great Bible lesson with your child. This is recommended for ages 4-7 and for comprehension I think those ages are appropriate, yet even at 10 months my daughter enjoyed sitting in my lap reading the book and pointing at all the images and characters.

Jesus' teachings referring to little children (παιδίον, paidíon) and infants/babies appear in several places in the New Testament and in the non-canonical Gospel of Thomas. The King James Version of Matthew's gospel (chapter 18) relates that: The word translated as converted in the King James Version (Greek: στραφητε, straphēte) literally means 'turn'. It is translated as "turn" in the English and American Standard Versions and as "change" in the New International Version

Jesus and the Children (Cecil and Friends). Will Cecil every get home? Will any of his friends miss him? Read this story based on Jesus' parable of the Lost Sheep in Luke 15:1-7.

Jesus and the Children by Andrew McDonough is part of the Cecil & Friends series. First Mia's review: It's a lesson book because it's wrong to be mean to be people, you need to be kind. You need to treat people the way you want to be treated. It's about God. He loves everyone! He loves when people are kind to each other, but He doesn't like it when people are mean. It's good to be kind. My favorite part was when everyone was happy together at the end. I thought the disciple on the skateboard was funny. The page at the very back with the cartoon and the baby was really funny too. Now my review: I was thrilled that this book was written at a level that Mia could (and did) read it aloud to me. We both enjoyed seeing the story placed in modern day times instead of in the traditional 1st century. I think that seeing it in that perspective allowed Mia to relate to the story in a new way more relevant to her. The story is based on the Scripture Mark 10:13-16 in which people bring their children to be blessed by Jesus but the disciples turn them away. When Jesus sees this, he tells them not to keep the children from him because only those who are like these children will make it into His kingdom. You can see from Mia's review that she grasped most of the message, and I explained the rest to her. McDonough includes humorous bits that brought a smile to both of our faces (note his line below the copyright info on the back page). Definitely an enjoyable read with a great message.

Jesus and the Children emphasizes that God does not just love adults, but children, too! This story is based on Mark 10:13-16. Jesus is shown in typical Jesus-type clothing, but all the other characters (mom, children, disciples) are modern-day. The disciples are a strange looking bunch and tried to stop all the children from coming to talk to Jesus, but Jesus put a stop to that. (I do want to note that one of the disciples does have a tattoo just in case someone is sensitive to that.) The last picture is awesome with all the disciples, children, the mom, and Jesus all hanging out (literally, like on the cover), happy as can be!

I like the illustrations and the stories, but I think the last two pages will be an invaluable resource for parents. Cecil's Page has an introduction to the story for the parents and gives suggestions for some discussion starters on what to do before the story and after the story. On the following page you can read the verses of the Bible than inspired Andrew McDonough to create the story.

The Cecil and Friends books are recommended for ages 4-7, and I wouldn't go any younger. I know I won't be reading them to my daughter next month when she turns four, but maybe in six months or so.

Thank you Zonderkidz for providing this book for review purposes.

Jesus with a goofy grin and big teeth; Disciples with tatoos and biker hair; a young boy racing to see Jesus on a skateboard... being new to the Cecil & Friends books, I must admit to being a bit taken aback by the book's brightly-colored, contemporary illustrations at first. My boys, however, found them fascinating and were immediately drawn into the story. And why wouldn't they be? All too often, we portray Jesus as serious, even stern, as antiquated, as history. With his unexpectedly contemporary illustrations and his modern take on a favorite Sunday School Bible story, Andrew McDonough conveys to children in a colorful, straight-forward manner that Jesus is not a thing of the past, that He didn't just love the children way back when. My boys walked away from this book laughing hysterically and understanding, perhaps better than ever, that Jesus loves them now, in this day in age, in all their Razor scootering, MP3 player listening glory. Hats off to Mr. McDonough for presenting this Bible Story to children in language and illustrations they not only relate to, but will continue to turn to again and again and again.

I received this book from Zondervan Publishers in exchange for my honest review. The thoughts printed in this review are entirely my own.

Andrew McDonough's Cecil and Friends series of children's books are different than those I'm naturally drawn towards. The colors are bright, bold, and the art is uncompromisingly two-dimensional, computer-colored, cartoons with bold, black outlines. Normally I'm not too into that, but Andrew McDonough's offerings are just so unashamed, so quintessential to that style of art that I actually think they are pretty cute.

Not only is the art wild and brash, but in McDonough's Jesus and the Children also puts Jesus (complete with Old Testament clothing) into a contemporary setting. His disciples are an edgy, rough crowd (one even has a sailor-type tattoo, maybe he's one of the fishermen disciples?), and the mother and children who come to visit Jesus (as per the well known account of Jesus and the children) are very suburban looking.

When Jesus' disciples scare the children away, Jesus gets...angry! My two-year-old always loves jumping in on the angry part! ANGRY she growls in excitement! There's no doubt that she clearly understands the message of this vibrant picture book - that Jesus loves the children and that God's kingdom is for the kids!

A section at the end of the book helps children to introduce and discuss this telling of Jesus and the children, and a page with the scripture (NIV) that the story is based on is also included making it easy for parents to take their children back to the source. There is also a funny, bonus illustration included that cracks my oldest daughter (8) up.

My children adore this quirky, offbeat, Bible-inspired story for children. My oldest reads it to my youngers (5, and 3), and they often ask me to read it for them as well. After all, who can ever get tired of hearing that Jesus loves them?
