Free Children's ebook: The Little Follower of Jesus (1889) based on Kempis's Imitation of Christ

It comes in a flipbook, text only, and is fully downloadable and in public domain at Internet Archives. Click here.

This is a wonderful way to introduce children to the classic, Imitation of Christ by Thomas Kempis. Read and respected by both Catholic and Protestant Christians.

It is downloadable as an ebook online at Project Gutenberg(click through the title above and scroll to bottom). Excellent Lenten(or anytime) reading.

The Imitation of Christ(Dover Thrift Editions) , a very inexpensive copy of this 15th century classic($2.50 new and .49 cents used at Amazon).

What a great find!
They sure don't make books like they used to.
Thank you. :)

It was quite a coincidence finding this because I had just left a comment on Esther's blog about Kempis's work! Maybe not a coincidence, there are none, are there?! :) Nice blessing for Lent.
