By Carissa Douglas
For ages 5-8
Sometimes life isn't easy. Every day can be fraught with ups and downs. But it's not what happens to you, it's how you handle it that counts.
In this book, Author Carissa Douglas teaches kids a lesson that lasts a lifetime. Join the Little Douglings on an adventure to surmount the challenges of everyday life. Together they encounter problems, and then find supernatural solutions that only Jesus offers.
In an uplifting and delightful verse, children learn how to “go to Jesus” when times are rough. Or for any reason at all, to experience His peace and forgiveness.
A little about Author and Speaker Carissa Douglas
Author and Illustrator Carissa Douglas helps parents and caregivers teach their kids how to grow closer to Jesus with fun, illustrated stories that rhyme. She lives in Georgina, Ontario with her husband, Patrick and their eleven young children. I Go To Jesus is the first book in The Little Douglings series which seeks to teach children the richness of the Catholic faith through the promotion of the sacraments.
Carissa Douglas’ book I Go to Jesus is the book that I wish I’d had when my children were younger. It’s the book for everyone who would like to teach their kids about the Real Presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. A definite in Catholic elementary schools all over. In fact, it’s not only a great book for children, but I can see how it can be a true source of grace for young and old.

Absolutely brilliant! This book is something that children can relate to and will lead them closer to God. I Go to Jesus is the answer to every pastor’s quest for a perfect catechetical resource.

This precious story is a melodic reminder of the truth and beauty of Jesus waiting for each of us in the Blessed Sacrament. Carissa Douglas has written a book that will soothe the souls of both parents and children. It is a must-read. It is a treasure.

I fell in love with the book instantly. It gives us a picture of a family that really believes and really puts into action their love for God and the Eucharist. May this book help all people, both young and old, to appreciate, to rediscover, and to be in love again with the Eucharist, who is Christ.
— Fr. Sherwin Holandez, Pastor of Immaculate Conception and Our Lady of the Lake Parish, Archdiocese of Toronto
