This is a fabulous book for any age, though it is essentially written for kids (adults don't have to miss out, in actual fact, I think they get a lot out of it too!). It practically shows how easy it is to walk in relationship with Jesus in every day life. He is closer than we think and we can engage with His presence through talking with Him about everyday things (all sorts of situations and feelings), as well as hearing what He says and thinks too. Every page illustrates a situation that is close to the hearts of kids, young and old, and shows how we can go about relating to Jesus our lives. Practical, fun and inspiring (it's very 'cool').
There are not many who have seen it who wouldn't like a copy for themselves or their children or grandchildren, or someone they know. It makes a great coffee table book (the kind that gets picked up time and time again, and poured over, with many good conversations resulting). The illustrations are extremely well done, and draw the reader into the topic on the page. It will make you laugh, you can really enjoy what is being communicated through this book. It is an entertaining read, as well as drawing anyone of any age to a closer and real relationship with God. It makes a great gift for all ages.
After years of being around books, this has to be absolutely one of the best children's books I have ever seen to inspire and encourage anyone of any age into a very real relationship with Jesus. Irresistably good!!!

This is such an amazing book. Such simple ideas about Jesus but are so important and often missed out in church teaching. I find the pictures really useful too. Not too babyish and more biblical then most children books which is important as children are visual learners ten adults. The picture of Jesus on the thrown was really great as you can see a city behind it and so it takes away the idea that Heaven is in the clouds.
I bought two copies and have already lent them both to friends to read with their kids, which has lead to great conversations.
