I Was There is the story of the earthly ministry and life of Jesus told from the viewpoint of a cute little puppy who followed Jesus and was there for all that happened. Each page tells of an event in the life of Jesus through two lines of text that start out "When Jesus did..." and ends with "I was there". The book is an excellent way to introduce children to the stories of Jesus in the Bible for at the bottom of the pages is a Gospel reference which allows an adult to refer to the longer Bible story if desired. The little dog responds emotionally to the events where he cries at the crucifixion and wags his tail happily at the Resurrection which helps bring children deeper into what is happening in the story. An interesting aspect is the presentation of the colorful illustrations in the book where you see things the way many children and animals do which is seeing nothing above the knees of the adults around them. The attention of the child looking at the book is drawn completely to what the little dog is experiencing and feeling and how it is reacting to the event that is occurring. This is a delightful book that you and your child will enjoy sharing together time and time again.
