I was so pleased to find this book. Though written in 1939, the language is clear and straight-forward and accessible. On the back is a note from the author - I assume it was originally a preface. Hunt writes, "....The reason the same story takes so much longer to tell in this book is that the men who wrote the Gospels just went straight on and hardly even stopped to explain anything. They couldn't be expected to know how differently we would live, and that we would have forgotten how people dressed and spoke and built their houses, and the other customs they had in those days. So in this book, I have to stop and explain all the time, but after you have read it, a good deal of the explaining will have been done, and you can start reading the Gospels yourself anytime you want." Well, my own kiddo has renewed her interest in the Bible after just a few pages with this book. Its retelling is gentle and warm, and the artwork is just enough to lend interest. The illustrator is Ted Schluenderfritz (that's 14 letters in that there name, folks, and typing all that just goes to prove his artwork for this book is worth taking note of!) A portfolio of his work can be seen at [...] This is an excellent book for reading aloud to pre-K's up to young readers. It shines as a religious ed. text for homeschoolers in early to mid elementary.

I was blessed to have received "A Life of Our Lord for Children" as a gift to read to my children. They are always eager for me to read from this book, and I have found that I have learned a few things myself. Marigold Hunt writes in a way to make it easy for the young children to grasp the content, but without boring my older children either (ages 3-11). I recently gave this book to another family as a gift, so that they can be blessed too.
