Invite little children to learn about Lent and Easter in this gentle and engaging board book that encourages generosity and compassion.

Laura Alary, bestselling author of Make Room: A Child’s Guide to Lent and Easter, presents a simple board book for the youngest readers to experience the story of Jesus at this important time of year. With simple text and soft, watercolor illustrations, Make Space for Jesus teaches young children about Jesus’ way of compassion, welcome, and generosity, and suggests little ways that we can make room in our hearts for others, like smiling and saying hello. This reassuring little book makes it clear that sadness is not the end of the story, but gives way to joy and new life.
