Jesus has a very special love for children. In Luke 18: 15 - 17, there as an account where some people were bringing children to Jesus so that He could touch them. But when the disciples saw this, they the tried to turn them away. But Jesus called the children to himself and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a child will never enter it."
