2¢ Worth: I remember when I was a little girl, I didn't really get other religions. Now that I'm a mama, I want my daughter to learn about different faiths. This is where I Believe in Jesus Too comes in. In a simple vivid way this book shows the reader that LDS (Latter-day Saint) kids all over the world aren't that different from other Christian children. Locations mentioned include: New York City, California, Tonga, Bolivia, Finland, Russia, Fiji, Spain, Mexico, Kenya, the Philippines, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, Nigeria, Canada, Jamaica, the Netherlands, and Brazil. The art is vivid and beautiful. With each page turn the reader visits one to two children around the world. It is so pretty that I couldn't stop turning the pages again and again.
Wooed: My favorite part is the inside cover with a world map featuring each of the kids, their faces, and their locations.
Wind-up: I Believe in Jesus Too (written by Mark S. Nielsen, illustrated by Craig Stapley, published by Deseret Books, and available as a 9.3 x 9.1 inches 32 page hardcover) is a great starting place for discussing other faiths with your kids. I love this book, have already read it to Baby Whimsy a handful of times, and I really do look forward exploring it more and more with her. 5 stars
