Better than a superhero by Belinda Francis is a great way of teaching children about Jesus. It covers many aspects of Jesus’ character and his mission. It touches on stories from the gospel accounts and gives children a great overview of Jesus’ life as well as explaining his kingship. Furthermore the book encourages children to talk to Jesus and have a relationship with him.

I especially like Kayleen West’s illustrations of Jesus, as well as coming across as caring, he also looks happy which I think is an important concept in itself. The rest of the illustrations are great too – attractive and appropriate to the text.

An instructive and fun book for young children.
