Go and Do Likewise! The Wisdom of Jesus
Jesus spoke of a lot of parables when he was on earth. Sometimes they are hard to understand, but Go and Do Likewise helps explain them to kids like me, along with some help from my parents. Some of the parables were ones I had heard before, like the wise man building his house on the rock, the Good Samaritan, leaving the ninety-nine sheep for the one lost, and the Prodigal Son. Each one of Jesus’s parables has a meaning, but sometimes Jesus says people won’t ever understand it because they don’t believe in him. I just need to be a little older to understand some of them myself.
I liked having this book read to me because the pictures are colorful but showing Jesus looking a little differently than I had imagined. There is a lot of artwork on the pages, sometimes with pictures inside of letters throughout the book. The words are a little hard for me to read, but the pictures do a good job of showing what is happening. I think that any kids who are Christians will like this book for themselves or in Sunday School.
