Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

As she did in her Christmas book, Bethlehem, French takes the stained glass windows of English cathedrals as inspiration for her radiant artwork, which accompanies text extracted from the King James Bible. Beginning with Jesus' ride to Jerusalem through crowds of palm-waving followers, French employs an intricate painting style that mimics the leading, shimmering color variance and composition of medieval stained glass. While matching the dignity of the text, her scenes also convey, via their expressive design, a sense of warmth, freedom and movement that children will find especially appealing. The selected Bible passages flow easily from one to the next, keeping the story of the Passion succinct and accessible for young readers (though some of the phrasing may require further explanation). Particularly memorable images include the disciples netting a multitude of wriggling fish on the sea of Tiberias, a stark, gray Jesus nailed to the cross and, fittingly, a gloriously bright, swirling depiction of Jesus being joyfully "carried up into heaven." A beauty. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal

Gr 3 Up-Spectacular spreads inspired by the stained-glass windows of English cathedrals are the focal point of this abbreviated version of Jesus's last days. Swirling scenes in incandescent jewel tones and bold black lines illustrate excerpts from the King James Version of the Bible, which are selected highlights rather than a continuous narrative. Among those included are the Last Supper, Judas's betrayal in the Garden of Gethsemane, Simon of Cyrene helping to bear the cross, the Crucifixion, the breakfast on the shore of the Sea of Tiberius, and the Ascension. The figures have expressive, individualized faces, some of which are cruel and frightening, and others devastated with pain and sorrow. The grayish-white crucified Jesus oozes ribbons of blood from his hands, feet, and side. The effect is intense and dramatic. A great deal of adult help in interpretation will be necessary for an understanding of this text, as well as a background in the teachings of Christianity.

I first took this book out of the library to share the Easter story with my daughters, ages 3 and 4. They just loved the illustrations. These made the story so alive to them they wanted to kiss away the hurt they thought Jesus was feeling. It was great to see the stained glass-like art work while reading the elegant words from the King James Bible. This book is a must for any parent trying to figure out how to present this story to young kids in a beautiful yet realistic way.

Beautiful pictures, limited text (scripture). Especially good for helping children to retell the story of Holy Week in their own words.

The stain-glass like illustrations and the King James text make this picture book appropriately sacred. Although the story is told briefly, many key details are nonetheless included. For example, the text mentions the last supper, doubting Thomas, and several of Christ Jesus' appearances after the resurrection, including the morning meal at the sea of Tiberias. This book is an excellent choice for parents and grandparents who want to be sure their children are biblically literate.
