Toddlers are not too young to learn the gospel! Help them discover how and why Jesus saves in this hopeful and beautifully illustrated board book. Using easy-to-understand, simple concepts, children’s book author Sarah Reju offers a way for parents to teach the good news to children ages one to four.
Every generation needs to hear and believe the good news. Even the youngest children need to know, from the time they are in diapers, that there is a God who made them, loves them, and is calling them to turn from their sins and trust in him. The rhythmic, repetitive style of the story will make the content memorable for toddlers.
Each bright page, illustrated by Phil Schorr, includes a short Bible verse that helps your child to understand the gospel and love Jesus. Also included for parents is a short explanation of how to explain the gospel to young children. This book will help parents build a foundation of faith for years to come.

“Delightful! Jesus Saves is a clear and creative primer to help our little ones understand their need for Jesus. I love how this book describes how incredibly competent and willing Jesus is to save them. Kids will want to hear this book read to them over and over again.”
Gloria Furman, Author of Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full
“This delightful book helps toddlers understand the gospel. At the same time, the book is short enough for busy toddlers and busy parents to find time to read without sacrificing biblical content. The illustrations capture the message wonderfully and parents, as well as those who teach young children, will be reminded of the greatest message in the world.”
Tom and Diane Schreiner, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“Sarah Reju has done a marvelous job of bringing great truths to the littlest of people in this sturdy, well-illustrated board book. Make sure to not miss the notes to parents she has put in the back. They are a jewel of a resource, filled with wisdom and encouragement that will help even the newest parents in their desire to present the great truths of the gospel to their children.”
Connie Dever, Creator, The Praise Factory Curriculum.
“Spurgeon was right when he said the gospel is “meat for men, but it is also milk for babes.” In Jesus Saves: The Gospel for Toddlers, Sarah Reju presents the gospel simply without losing the message or diluting the truth. The result is a short but clear explanation of God’s love in sending his Son Jesus to die for our sin and rise again, presented in a way that even a young toddler can comprehend. Every family should have a copy on their shelf and a few extras to give away.”

"Jesus delights in the little children coming to him. As parents, we are always looking for fresh ways to help our children better know who Jesus is and what he has done for them. Jesus Saves is a creative, colorful, and engaging resource that can help even the youngest of children learn the good news that Jesus loves them and desires to save them from their sin."
Garrett and Carrie Kell, Del Ray Baptist Church
“Sarah Reju's rhythmic prose and Phil Schorr's colorful and engaging illustrations make the simple gospel of God's kingship, our sin, Christ's salvation, and our need to respond with faith and repentance clear and memorable for your toddler. In Jesus Saves, Sarah doesn't merely declare the facts of the gospel; she proclaims the need for each child to respond personally. This isn't just good news in general. This is good news, as Sarah says, “for you, little one. Yes, you!”
Jared Kennedy, Cofounder of Gospel-Centered Family; author of The Beginner's Gospel Story Bible
