An engaging retelling of the feeding of the 5,000 that helps young children discover how Jesus gives life that lasts for ever, not just for now!
Part of the Little Me, Big God series.
Thousands of people came to Jesus—and they were all hungry. But one boy had a sandwich to share. So Jesus prayed and then shared the sandwich with the huge, hungry crowd. Everyone was amazed and wanted him to be King.
But Jesus said, "You're just thinking about getting your dinner, which is all finished now. I've come to give you something that's never finished and always enough!"
In this engaging retelling of the feeding of the 5,000 from John 6 v 5-35, young children discover how Jesus gives life that lasts for ever, not just for now!
Notes for parents at the back help explain what Jesus says about himself in John 6 v 26-27 and 35.

The book is teeny tiny, and quite flimsy, but the story is put in a lovely and accessible way, and the illustrations are brilliant!
Lovely little book, beautifully illustrated and a simple but faithful telling of John 6:5-35. My three year old is a big fan.
