Both books for
ages 4 and up.
So this is the cover for the new story. After some prayer, I received this idea to use the empty tomb. It certainly illustrates the answer to Kelly's question. Here are a few reviews from others:
"Kathy's story takes a simple question from her daughter and shows how to answer it--even when Kelly herself didn't understanding fully what she was asking. We parents don't always know the right questions to ask, but our Heavenly Father answers us in just the way that we need."
"I gave the book to my grandson and his wife. They have 3 girls aged 5 and twins who are 3. I think they will enjoy it for years." Jeannette Bosma
"Children will like it and the scriptures for parents to look up in the Bible are great. Good job my Friend!"
"Children love stories about other children. Tiny ears and eyes find the adventures of their generational peers irresistible. With simplicity and clarity, Kathy Banks and Kelly Renee offer children and families a captivating and beautifully illustrated story, which takes them on a journey through the 'nuts and bolts' of the Gospel. I am confident parents will discover that 'How Do We Know It’s Jesus?' will foster the development of a steadfast and enduring Christian faith in the lives of their children. I fully commend this simple book as a tremendous resource for the 'tool box' of believing parents who desire to lead their children to know and love our Risen Savior."

Children & parents may dread bedtime, but Brian can show you that bedtime can be the best time for a great conversation.
Brian was always asking questions right at bedtime. One day he had a question that was the best question. It just had to be answered right then. So Mom sat with him and told him how she came to believe in Jesus as her Savior. Let's find out how the story goes.

Endorsements for "How Do We Know..."
Every Christian parent wants to teach their children to love Jesus. Yet the greater gift a parent can give is to teach their children that Jesus loves them. A parent can give no greater gift to their children than to reveal the love of Christ! This book is an endeavor in that most transformational of proclamations.

"God gives us children to teach us the greatest lessons about our relationship to Him. The time we spend with our kids is being used by our Heavenly Father to teach not only them, but us!" -Diana, Mom of 8
There is no better time to talk about Jesus to children than bedtime. Distractions are put away, the lights are low.
Your child has played hard and will soon sleep soundly.
Make use of this time with Kathy Banks’ book, How Do We Know It’s Jesus? The book will ask and prompt questions
from the curious mind of your children. Though we don’t
have to go into theological deeps in our answers, providing timely responses to questions from our children is one
of the most important responsibilities of Christian parents. This book will provide some stones for building a study foundation on truth for your child.

"I believe this concept is for 10-13 yr olds. It's a Bible lesson. Your idea of encouraging conversation & questions about who is Jesus is a great idea. I remember reading stories to my daughters. Keep up your writing, Kathy. Kids need good Christian books and need to accept Jesus into their hearts at a young age." Hazel
Reviews for "Momma, Do You Remember..."
.. made me CRY...yes, that's a good thing...sweet memories. I love this story! I'm praying for the Lord to open the doors wide on this and other stories in the future.
This is a great reminder for parents to choose to take those limited opportunities to spend quality time with their kids. I say limited, because it's only now that those young years are past that I realize I missed a lot of opportunities. As a mom of eight, I spent a good deal of time reading & talking at bedtime, but I still regret not spending more time with them!
.Diana Cunningham, Colorado Springs
I think it's a beautiful story. An encouragement, not only to parents, but also to me as a sister and daughter not to let time, business or tiredness keep me from seeking to have meaningful, quality, talks and moments with my family, like are had in this story at bedtime, while I still can.
Beautiful illustrations, Kelly Renee is so talented. Your book is a great reminder that night time is an excellent opportunity to have meaningful, thought provoking and often life changing conversations with our children, with the most important question in life being, “Who is Jesus Christ to them?”
Any Christian literature is a good thing
and will do a good work somewhere, sometime.
God bless you.
It’s like a little Bible Study.
Great job, Kathy.
It helps children see what it means
to accept Jesus as Savior.
I think the book would benefit Bible Study classes an classrooms.
