Review by Shannon

My youngest really loves anything to do with Mary so I knew this was a book that she would enjoy. I was right she enjoyed it and loved everything about it. I read through it after she was done and it is a really great book and series. I know I will be getting Get to Know: Jesus also. If you are looking for a wonderful, historical book that really goes into the life of Mary then grab this book off of Amazon or through you local bookstore. You will get historically accurate account of what Mary's life was like from the teens years (when she was engaged to be married) through the years after Jesus died on the cross.

Overall this Get to Know series is wonderful and one that I know you and your child will enjoy and read many times. Even my 13-year-old said it was good and said she wished she had this book when she was doing her report on Mary for her Religion class at school. So while it is geared towards 6-10 year olds I think older kids could use it if they go to a christian school. This book and series would be a wonderful gift for first communion, a teacher or RE teacher. (Posted on 7/2/2014)

Overall, I honestly love these books! I have never seen such an amazing biography for kids based on the Bible. I am honestly blown away at how easy these are to read, how interesting the pictures are, and how educational they are for the young readers. My kids asked so many questions during these books, it was a wonderful time before bed and they learned instead of just pictured the story. I highly recommend these books to anyone who has school aged children; they are just perfect for them, and on top of that perfect for the beginning reader.
