More than 120 million readers have found comfort in the writings of Max Lucado. He ministers at the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, where he lives with his wife, Denalyn, and a sweet but misbehaving mutt, Andy.From Booklist:
Ages 5-8. A young boy, Elijah, meets Jesus and rushes home to tell his mother, expressing his desire to give Jesus a gift. He looks around at their meager possessions, but nothing seems suitable. His mother reassures him that Jesus won't care about the size of the gift. During the week Elijah hears about gifts people give to Jesus: they lend him their home so he can preach, they provide him with a meal. But Elijah has nothing. One day he and his mother go to hear Jesus teach. A large crowd has gathered, and soon everyone is hungry and tired. Elijah and his mother have brought only enough food for themselves, but they offer Jesus what they have. Of course, it is with their small offering that Jesus feeds the thousands on the hillside. Bladholm's realistic illustrations convey the powerful message that no gift is too small for God. Shelley Townsend Hudson
