Help Your Young Child Be Friends with Jesus

Jesus Do You Want to Be My Friend

Jesus Do You Want to Be My FriendJesus, Do You Want to Be My Friend? Is a new picture book by Mark Restaino, illustrated by J.P. Alcomendas. It is a charming, colorful book based on the idea that children can always talk to Jesus and ask him questions.

Each two-page spread features an illustration combined with a question and a Bible verse. For example, the first page says, “Jesus, can you help me get up?” along with the Bible verse, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength” (Phil 4:13).

Jesus, Do You Want to Be My Friend? is a lovely book to share with a young child in your life to encourage him or her to always trust in Jesus and ask him for help.
