My 2 year old daughter adores this book and often requests it. She calls it the "Jesus Book." It is heartfelt with wonderful examples of how children can show love to others as Jesus did on a daily basis. My 4 year old also enjoys this book. The illustrations are lovely, too, with creative connections to scripture stories hidden in many of the pictures.
The message and illustrations are inspiring and very well done! This is a MUST have for any home trying to teach about Jesus and all that He wants us to know. The message is beautiful and the illustrations deliver that message. The illustrations also show how everyone, even very young children, can use these teachings in our everyday lives in a fun and relatable way. Great job Chase Jensen! Thanks for sharing your talents.
I am always excited about Christian children's books. This one was no different. The book cover is beautiful and hardback.
I read the book to my children last night, and they all had good things to say:
Casey, the 12-year-old, loved the messages of the book, the beautiful artwork, and how Jesus was incorporated into each and every page of the book. He liked finding each representation.
Rigel, the 6-year-old, made us tear up as he reiterated the things he learned from the book - that Jesus loves us, that he sacrificed for us, that he healed people, and that He created the world for us. His testimony was so sweet, and I am grateful that the book touched his heart.
Kamren, the 4-year-old, didn't have much to say, but he did leaf through the book and chose his favorite page, which was the page where the boy had drawn Jesus teaching with chalk. All my kids loved that page.
I highly recommend this amazing book to all parents with kids, regardless of age. They will learn about Jesus, and how to be like him in many different aspects of life. Isn't that why we are here?
This adorable book shows how we as followers of Jesus Christ can be more like him. Each two page spread shares one way that Jesus showed love to his followers and the people around him. Jesus helped create the earth, taught those willing to listen, healed the sick, and sacrificed His life for all humankind. The illustrations take the concept of following Christ's example a step further by showing ways to demonstrate that love by helping those around us. Each illustration shows a child showing love as well as a small reference to the event in Christ's life that is being referenced. This book provides a sweet way to help children understand just what it means to be like Jesus.
This is a wonderful book to introduce a child to ways he/she can "be like Jesus".
This attractive, hardbound book has many, simply stated examples, of what Jesus did and how he/she can do the same to how love.
The watercolor artwork of Illustrator, Chase Jensen, are very colorful and depicts the story well. It will surely entice your "little ones" to repeatedly listen and learn!
The Cover and Title are very eye-catching ad are a perfect "fit"!
I offer a Four and a Half Stars rating on this book.
*This was gifted me without any suggestion I give a positive review. This is my honest review.
I love this book so much. This is such a great book to read with your little ones. It's so important to teach them from a young age how loved they are by Jesus. This teaches them such great things. It teaches them that they can help, love, teach, share and how to not judge others.
The world needs more books like this :). I don't have little ones any more, but I have lots of nieces and nephews, and one day I will have grandchildren. This is definitely going to be added to my collection of children's books.
The illustrations are beautiful. The story is perfect. Plus, just look at how cute that cover is!
You should pick this one up, I promise you won't be disappointed. It's just so sweet.

What a sweet and inspiring book! So often we tell our children to act and to love like Jesus, but what does that mean? In her book, I Can Love Like Jesus, Heidi Poelman teaches us just that. In simple ways that children can understand, we are taught how Jesus loved, and how we can do just that. A great book for any family that wants to do good in the world. I loved it.
this little book is amazing. Very simple for kids of all ages but with a message FOR ALL OF US! Loved it! we all need this message!
I just love Heidi's books. She is so inspiring... For all ages.
