My Review:
 All these years I have bought biographies for my children to write reports from and to learn more on a specific individual but I recently come across and author that writes biographies based on Biblical figures. Now we can have these type of books around for our children to write papers on. The people discussed in the Bible really did exist so why not right a report on David or Daniel? Well now they can! Nancy Sanders has written a series called the "Get to Know" series and each book contains a multitude of information on each Bible figure. And there is plenty of information there to create all sorts of resources for projects and reports.

 In Jesus (Get To Know), you will find many facts about our Saviour as well as maps and timelines that explain his life and ministry. Full of interesting facts, Bible knowledge and very intriguing photographs these biographies will be all you need to learn about Jesus and so much more. Geared toward the 6-10 age group and a very short read.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Book Look.
