I received a complimentary product to facilitate this post, but this did not sway or influence this post. All thoughts and opinions are 100% honest and mine alone.
For Squeaker, I want holidays to be a blend of culture (worldview), faith, and fun. This especially holds true with important Christian holidays like Christmas and Easter. But finding appropriate toys and books can sometimes be difficult. Or at least toys that I think she’ll enjoy that aren’t too tacky or not very child friendly. With Easter especially, I want to use this time to teach her more about Jesus and our Christian faith. I want to look for items that will both build up her faith, not only for Easter but all year. That’s why I’m so happy to share about this Easter gift idea: Jesus Sees Us. This book and doll set is appropriate for children ages 2-6. With Squeaker being 15 months old, she’s a little under the recommended age range but I thought she would still do well.
A little bit about Jesus Sees Us from the creators:
Jesus Sees Us was created by two mothers of preschool-ages children looking for an engaging and relatable way to introduce Jesus and their Faith to their children
Includes a soft body Doll with a hard molded head and a hard covered Lesson Book
The Doll has a warm and loving face and inviting, open arms that mirror the image of the illustrations in the Lesson Book
Lesson Book includes illustrated Biblical stories of Jesus with Scripture reference and correlating lesson on how we can model our behavior like Jesus today
A wonderful tool to help your child foster a personal relationship with Jesus at a very young age that will last a lifetime
When we received our package, I left everything in the box, just to see how Squeaker would react:
She wanted to touch her new doll and was quite eager to see the contents of the box. I enjoyed the fact that the doll was realistic but not too heavy. Once I was fully convinced that this would keep her attention, I took everything out of the box and set it on the couch for her. Usually she’ll go after books and try to rip the pages but she was quite gentle with this book and wanted to explore it:
I’ll preface this part by saying that I’ve bought several child/toddler friendly Bibles for Squeaker. That’s another review for another day, but I want her to have access to the Bible on her level.
That’s what I like about the included book. Each story is short enough but provides a poignant lesson. What’s more is that I can reference back to one of her Bibles to supplement with a lesson that’s included in the book.
She enjoyed looking at the pictures and once she had examined the book on her own, she was content to sit in my lap with her new Jesus doll and listen to a story.
I look forward to being able to use this for the next few years as we continue to build a firm foundation of faith with Squeaker.
