This little book is a great teaching tool for parents or grandparents to use with their young ones. Each page has colorful pictures of animals caring for their babies and scripture telling how God cares for us. It also shows how parents take care of their children just like the animals take care of theirs. One example is how a baby elephant learns from its mother so it can later help with other baby elephants in the herd. It gives this as an example of how we can be friends and help others. A father penguin keeps an egg warm with his body just like parents wrap blankets around their children and snuggle with them. But most important is how it teaches God's great love for us with each page that is read.
It's never too young to start teaching of how God cares for and loves us. The back of the book shows how this book grows with the child from baby to toddler to child. A great little teaching book.
I received this book from the author through Bookfun and was not required to give a review, positive or otherwise.

Callie Grant has done it again!  She has the powerful gift of expressing “grown-up” life concepts so children can understand and begin to make part of their own thinking processes.  A bonus at the end of the book are the wonderful questions to use as discussion starters for any aged child and adult.


Jesus Shows Me is based on the concept of God’s love and care for mankind.  The author uses animals – which children relate to well – to show how these emotions are carried out by parents, family, and other caregivers.  The animal facts are fantastic and the illustrations are so beautiful!  This is a book that will be loved by all children and adults alike.


I received this free book from Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review that is also posted on Barnes and Noble and Goodreads.

Penguin fathers snuggle Mother ducks lead. Wolves watch. Each animal knows the best way for its kind to live. God made them that way. He made you for a certain kind of life, too – a life with Him. Jesus shows you how…”

Jesus Shows Me, written by Callie Grant, is part of the Knowing My God series. This book focuses on John 15:9-14. With 18 beautiful pages, the child will the Bible verses as well as about different animals and how them protect and teach their young. The pages included real life photos of penguins, kangaroo,ducks,dolphins, wolves, zebra, and elephant. This book is meant for all ages of children. It will allow the baby to hear your voice, for the toddler, is helps teach them by talking about the pictures, and for the older child, they will learn the Bible verse as well as the information about the different type of animals. The book also supplies discussion questions at the end to help talk with the older child about friendship and love.

This is my favorite book in this series! I love that the author has used this particular Bible verse to teach about Gods love for us and our love for others. I also like how the author has used animals and how they care for their family. She provides information that I did not know, so this book will also be fun for adults to read to their children.

This is a very durable board book, with shiny, easy to clean pages. It is a good size for children to hold and carry as well. I enjoyed looking at the real life photos of the parent animal and their young as well.

I received a copy of this book from the author and Book Club Network. This is my honest review.

Another precious board book by Callie Grant, this one focuses on John 15:9–14 and a relationship with the Father. The Knowing My God series tackles biblical concepts and attempts to make them understandable for children. Each spread includes a color photo of an animal on the left, along with texts and a small line drawing on the right on a bright, colored background. With words to read to a child and suggestions for discussion, the book is designed to grow with the child I especially like the emperor penguin photo and the zebras. Information about the animals adds insights and a parallel to spiritual truths. Some of the white text was hard to read printed on the bold color. (Also, the Bible verse references should use en-dashes, not hyphens.) I recommend this series as a great addition to your young one’s or church library. I was given the book by Book Fun (The Book Club Network), and this is my honest review.

Reviewed on FB, Amazon, CBD, BAM. Why does the series on CBD have old version/covers?

Jesus Shows Me in the Knowing God series is written by Callie Grant with art by Missi Jay.  Jesus Shows Me is based upon John 15:9-14.  Vivid, attractive, and delightful photos illustrate the theme of the book.  The author relates the story simply for a child to learn and understand and provides information for the parent about how to use the book to teach a baby, a toddler, and finally a child.  This is very well written and illustrated to captivate and engage the young child.  I received this book through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.  (posted on Amazon, Good Reads, Christian Books, Deeper Shopping, Barnes & Noble, and Books-a-Million)

Jesus Shows Me is a great completion of the three book series.  I love the illustrations of these beautiful books; how they draw in both the adults and the young children reading them. I love how these books appeal both to infants and preschoolers and become part of a beloved collection.  We have worn our books thin both from my own kids as well as children we babysit.  They are just drawn to them.  Highly recommend.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.  All reviews are solely mine.

Jesus Shows Me is the third board book from the Knowing My God series that I have had the privilege to review. With sturdy, child friendly pages and beautiful photography, Callie Grant illustrates and explains John 15:9-14. "Love one another as I have loved you." While the book seems most geared to the toddler age, with a little tweaking it can work just as well for older children, too. Parents are encouraged to read the book aloud to their children, looking at the pictures and asking questions about what the child sees in the photos. This edition is filled with pictures of animal parents caring for their young. It's kind of a trip to the zoo without the smells....

I definitely recommend this to parents of young children. The pictures are stunning and I'm sure your child will want to look at them over and over again. I also like the way Ms. Grant takes the scripture apart, verse by verse, and explains it in ways that any child can understand. This series is a sweet step toward faith in God, expanding the knowledge of both the children being read to and whoever is doing the reading. My grandson is going to get my copy for Christmas and I can't wait to hear his reaction when he sees all the animals!

Jesus Shows Me" is a Christian board book by author Callie Grant. The art is done by Missi Jay and is as delightful as it is in the other two books in this series, Knowing My God. The author continues to write books that babies through young children will enjoy and want to read again and again and again! The artwork is interesting, kid friendly, and colorful.

This third installment explores our relationship with God our Father and uses the scripture John 15:9-14. On the left pages are stunning photographs of baby and adult animals. The right pages have a drawing, scripture portion, animal fact, and explanation tying it all together. Children will love seeing all of the animals such as the penguins, elephants, zebras, and wolves. The author does an excellent job using facts about the animals to help children relate to scripture, God and adults.

I would highly recommend this book and gladly rated it a 5 out of 5 stars. This would even a great book for anyone with young children or babies. "Jesus Shows Me" would be a wonderful addition to any church, preschool or church library. It would make a lovely shower or birthday gift. I was given the book by Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and this is my honest review. Reviews were left on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, CBD.com, Deeper Shopping, Good Reads, and TBCN.
