I received this complimentary product from the publisher for my honest review.
This book tells the true story about the changed life of Zacchaeus, a heartless tax collector that overcharged the people and kept the extra for himself.
This hated man was loved by Jesus, and surprisingly Zacchaeus wanted to see Him.
Zacchaeus’ efforts paid off as Jesus went and spent time at Zacchaeus’ house.
Zacchaeus ended up loving Jesus very much. Because of his love and willingness to be kind and love others, Zacchaeus paid back the people he stole from, plus gave them extra.
Ms. Williams has done an excellent job of writing simply and the story is very easy to understand.
The illustrations bring the story to life, and there were quite a few places that made me chuckle.
At the end of the book is a note for parents explaining Zacchaeus’ changed life and the impact that Jesus had on him.
Also, the NIV Scripture text of Zacchaeus’ life is available for reference.
I am so glad that Ms. Williams was able to insert the gospel message into the book as well.
This preschool-level book would be a great addition to any home library, church nursery, or young child’s classroom. The Little Man Whose Heart Grew Big
