Forever With Jesus - Book Review

 Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.


   Forever With Jesus written by Lee Ann Mancini and illustrated by Dan Sharp is part of the Adventures of the Sea Kids, an award-winning Children's Christian book series. Each story focuses on different issues one might face, helping children understand the situation better. This book teaches children about death and how Jesus died for our sins and that we can be with Him forever in Heaven if we believe in Him and accept Him into our hearts. While the adorable fishy cousins were visiting their grandmother for her 80th Birthday, their well known neighbor passed away. This, though an unfortunate event, allowed the grandmother to teach her grandchildren about Heaven, where people go when their bodies pass on. She reads a passage from the Bible and explains "in heaven the lion will lay down with the lamb. That means there will be peace. We will have no enemies in heaven." She uses this example to tell her grandchildren the wonders of heaven and that there will be no tears, no pain, and no suffering; Helping them understand that there is no need to fear death, that it happens naturally and believing in Jesus will give them everlasting life in heaven with Him.


   I love the colorful illustrations in this story, and the bubbly faces each fish has. The art style reminds me of a combination of Flounder from The Little Mermaid and Finding Nemo, making it very kid friendly and appealing. The story line itself is great to use in teaching children about loved ones passing on. I think this would make an excellent book to gift your child, especially in times of grief, including that of an animal passing. There is also a 'Find and Seek' aspect to the book, finding a hidden cross in each page, to give the child something fun to look forward to. I would love to see the other stories in the Adventures of the Sea Kids children's book!



You can find Forever With Jesus available for purchase on Amazon, christianbook.com, or Barnes and Noble.
