A few years ago my mother-in-law sent Stories of Jesus by Melanie and Roger Hoffman to us as a gift. It's probably one of the best gifts we have ever received. Stories of Jesus is an album of music sung by children, for children. But I can truly say that every member of our family loves this album.
The album contains songs about the life of Jesus, starting with his birth and ending with remembering Him and His life. In a way this album is like Handel's Messiah for children. The songs teach about Christ's life in easy ways that children not only remember, but want to hear again and again, and cannot help but sing along to.
All the songs are so beautiful that it is tough to pick a favorite. My five-year-old has been captivated by He Is Risen from the beginning, I love Come into the Water (a song about Baptism) and my three-year-old loves to sing along to Run to Egypt. Gethsemane is another of my favorites. This captivating song really makes you stop and ponder what is important.
The messages are simple, yet profound. And the songs are catchy. The children who sing the songs have angelic voices that I have yet to tire of. I would highly recommend this CD for anyone who wants their kids to learn songs about Jesus' life. It's the perfect gift to give a loved one in celebration of this coming Easter.
Go HERE to listen to song samples and to find out how you can order the album from Deseret Book or download it from iTunes.
