“Jesus Sees Us” Doll & Picture Book

sees
I got an email about the “Jesus Sees Us Doll & Picture Book” from Laura Beth with FlyByPromotions and was so happy to see something like this that we would get to review.  My son is older now, but anything like this, I love to see and let other Mom’s of younger kids know about it – as well as my son’s Christian school and our church family.

I had never heard of this “Jesus Sees Us” item before, but loved that it could get the younger generation (2+) knowing that God is real and always with us.  The book was amazing and had some great teachings in it that would be good for the younger crowd, or even some older ones.  With stories of how to share with others, respecting adults, having faith and trusting in God, as well as so many other ones, it was something that you could enjoy, as well as learn from.  I think that there are even some older “kids” in the world today that need to read these stories!!

I did some research on the site that is behind this doll and book and was really impressed of what it was all about.  A couple of Mom’s going with something that was on their heart and making a difference in the world today.  I so wish that there were more people in the world like them.  So many of us say that we don’t feel we can make a difference, or don’t have what it takes.  Well, with God, you have everything!!  Go with what is in your heart and make a mark on this world that glorifies Him.

I will definitely be telling my friends about this product and even letting some of the parents of younger ones know what a great gift idea this would be for their toddlers, children…and maybe even older kids.  I thought at first that I would give mine to a friend, but with how much I love it, I think I just might pretend that I’m a lot younger and keep it for myself.  Never hurts to keep on learning.

About The Book:

Religion can be difficult for children to understand at a young age. Even though we talk to children about Jesus or take them to Sunday services, they are not always able to understand the importance of the Christian message. Jesus Sees Us is a tool that makes Jesus, His teachings, and the concept of faith both relatable and positive to young children by introducing Him as the loving and forgiving presence in our lives.

Children experience Jesus’ love in so many ways every day. But of all the ways that His love can be seen and communicated, how can we know that the children sense and accept Jesus?

By the time a child turns three years old, he or she already has the capability to relate to Jesus. Children can understand that, like them, Jesus was a baby with parents who loved Him. They can understand that Jesus’ birth was so special and important that it is the reason we celebrate Christmas. They can understand that Jesus grew up to be a man who loved everyone and taught people to do the same. Children become excited and inquisitive when they can master these facts, ultimately making them more open to deeper conversations and ideas about faith.

seesThe Jesus Sees Us doll is an integral part of fostering your child’s initial introduction to Jesus. The doll becomes the tangible connection to the stories and lessons in the book. He is the touchable source of comfort that a child can relate to. The Jesus Sees Us doll has a soft body and a warm, welcoming face. His arms and hands are open, inviting your child to hold him, engage with him, and pray with him. The Jesus Sees Us doll allows your child to “play out” the valuable and timeless lessons of the Bible. Can you think of a more valuable way for your child to play?

The Jesus Sees Us book is included with the Jesus doll. This family Christian book is made up of timeless Christian lessons and explores the Beatitudes in a way that is clear and engaging for children. Each lesson is introduced through Jesus and then further explored in a modern day scenario, showing children how they can positively model their behavior after Jesus. It is an age-appropriate introduction to Jesus’ life and teachings that encourages children to act in ways that are Jesus-like through example.

Each lesson opens up a possibility for discussion with your child about how they would handle the different situations, creating a confidence and pride about their own actions and decisions.

Each story in the book was carefully selected to highlight the most important and relatable teachings of our faith. Children are able to engage with the characters visually, emotionally, and intellectually while they read and discuss the valuable lessons with an adult. Each Bible story is then re-interpreted with child characters that your children can connect to. By understanding the positive and negative actions of the characters, they will be more likely to make the right decisions in their own lives.

About The Authors:

seesJesus Sees Us was lovingly conceived by two mothers of preschool children; Maureen Longua Bueltmann and Kelly McCourt. Both mothers were struggling with the same challenge; how to introduce their young children to their Faith in an engaging and relatable way. “We were just beginning to talk to our preschooler about Jesus and our Faith,” says Co-creator Bueltmann. “But my husband and I could not find anything appropriate to engage her at this ‘magical age.’”

“I knew my daughter was capable of faith; she was already fascinated with Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. At the same time – I saw her physical connection with her favorite stuffed animal and the comfort she found in her security blanket.”

“So we asked ourselves, What if we replaced those items with the face, love and comfort of Jesus? She could live with the presence of Jesus in her life instead of just being taught about Him in abstract stories.”

Using the challenge as an opportunity

If mass media can recognize that children at this age are eager for wonder and enchantment, why can’t we channel that same interest and belief into our actual Faith by introducing them to our Savior? “We saw this as a perfect opportunity to introduce children to Jesus in an age-appropriate way, says Co-creator Kelly McCourt. That’s what they need at that age – a grounding; warmth, safety and love.”sees

Jesus Sees Us was designed to engage and introduce children to Jesus on their level. “It’s designed to be accessible; loving and comfortable – just like that teddy bear or security blanket they are so attached to. Their first relationship with Jesus can be a warm and loving engagement; He has open arms, a loving face and a soft push, huggable body” Says McCourt.

The accompanying book allows children to “meet” Jesus through His words and loving actions, and shows them how to model their behavior after Him. “Children at this young age are beginning to explore and struggle with new feelings, responsibilities and relationships. When children can be shown how to navigate conflict and find a happy solution on their own, they are more confident and more likely to continue to want to work towards a resolution the next time” Says McCourt. “We are excited to share the joy of this product with all Christian families and their children.”

Wow, this is so cool, never heard of this before either but now I’m interested! Great review, I’ll have to check out this product. My little ones are learning more about Christianity and Jesus and it is a bit difficult for them at times to understand so this would be a wonderful product to have. Tweeted this, thanks for sharing it!

By introducing a child to Jesus could change the child’s whole world. We have to guide our children and grandchildren to learn to live a Christian life.

I think this would be a great teaching tool, because kids need to visualize things sometimes. Talking about Jesus works as well, but this puts a face to the names and stories.

Children are surrounded by books, movies, and toys that have little to do with faith. I don’t think that’s always bad; there is much that is good in the world, too! But it is also nice to be able to teach little children on their level with books and toys. This is a very cute idea!
