Jesus Heals the Sick is a children’s book that puts together several stories from the Bible of Jesus healing those who were sick. The artwork is taken from The Beginner’s Bible, also from Zondervan, and it is in a soft cover format. (For more information about this product, please go here.)
I liked this retelling of Jesus healing the various people, especially how it pulled it several of the healings together into one story. 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 when the people put their friend through the roof.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 little Bible story book telling about many of the people who were healed by Jesus during his life here on Earth.
