The text has two parts: one in very simple rhyme for very young children and the other a little more in depth for an older child. Both teach very big truths in a very easy, developmentally appropriate way. The illustrations are beautiful, vibrant and include lots of diversity and give the child the varied examples of how baptisms can look from different church traditions.
As a children's pastor, I am so happy to add Baptized in the Water to my carefully curated collection of children's books. It's going to make the rounds when I know an older sibling or parent might be getting baptized, when a child expresses interest in baptism, or when the concept of baptism comes up during our gatherings. It is perfect for helping a child process and understand, what baptism is, the history and meaning behind it, and the different ways that it can look from different faith traditions all in age appropriate and theologically sound ways.
This book would be wonderful as a baptismal gift for children of any age!
It explains baptism to children in such a winsome way. I have never seen another book on the subject quite like this. I am delighted!
