The simple text and beautiful illustrations show children exactly how Jesus loved others and how to emulate Him with small acts of kindness, like sharing, forgiving, and comforting. Invite the Savior into your home and feel His peace each time you read this book together.

My Review

I love the messages found in this book! There are a myriad of examples for how children can follow the example of Jesus Christ in their everyday lives. The illustrations are vibrant, cute, and do a great job of depicting the examples in the text. My children have read this book several times and love to look at the pictures. It's perfect for them to bring to church and help them be reverent during sacrament meeting. We love this book and it would make a great gift!

Synopsis

The sacrament is the most important part of the Sabbath day—and our week. Teach your little ones about the sacred sacrament and how they can apply it in their everyday lives, from the playground to piano lessons. Help your children start each week right and understand the reason behind the reverence of Jesus’s eternal sacrifice, love, and example.

My Review

My daughters and I love this great LDS children's book with a meaningful message and dynamic illustrations to portray it. I just taught a lesson on the sacrament in my senior Primary class and it focused on helping the kids understand the power of the sacrament and how they can receive blessings from it. The Sacrament Is for Me is a great resource for younger children to understand this symbolic ordinance and how following Jesus brings happiness. Highly recommend!

(Thank you to Cedar Fort Publishing for a copy of the book; this is my honest review)
