Jesus Feeds the Hungry is a children’s book that tells the story from the Bible of Jesus feeding the five thousand (Matthew 14:13-21; Mark 6:30-44; Luke 9:10-17; John 6:1-15). The artwork is taken from The Beginner’s Bible, also from Zondervan, and it is in a soft cover format. (For more information, please go here.)
I liked this retelling of Jesus feeding the five thousand. It stays accurate to the verses from the Bible but uses language that is somewhat easier for younger ones to understand and to read. The pictures are nice and colorful, but I thought they were a bit on the cartoon-y side. (It’s something about the eyes…they pop out at you).
When I asked my three-year-old daughter what she liked best about the book, she said she liked the pictures of the fish and that “it was a miracle!”The recommended age group is 2-5, and I think that is an appropriate target for this book. My daughter was interested in the story and liked the pictures. It is a nice Bible story book telling about a wondrous miracle that was performed by Jesus during his life here on Earth.
