This book is a wonderful, consise and simple way to explain the events leading up to Easter to children. It covers all the major events in a clear way that children can understand. It would be wonderful for parents or teachers. The illustrations are nice, too. Although the subject matter deals with extreme suffering and death, nothing in this book is "gory" or "too scary."

I purchased this book to read to our smaller children at church. They were very quiet and attentive (which is somewhat of a miracle. Couldn't purchase a book locally that told the true story of Easter. This was great

We were looking for some books to prepare our barely 4 year old son for Easter this season and wanted something that acknowledged the story truthfully but wasn't frightening or overwhelming. This is a simple book with appropriate illustrations and is well priced. I plan to order more from this company to go along with Bible lessons.

This book is written in rhyme. The pictures are lovely & it is great for any Christian family, regardless of denomination. It's so nice to find Christian Easter things - this was a great little book to stick in my son's Easter basket!

We used these books in Sunday School, both for Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday. And the children then each took home their own book. Bible references are there, story is child appropriate. It is also accurate and childrenare interested and do understand the text. Illustrations are appealing and child-friendly. A great book!

This short book highlighted important events with a rhyming tone that was enjoyable for all ages. Our 2 year old loved it and it was a great book to read during Holy Week.

This is a decent book to summarize the significance of Easter and its real meaning in a way that is understandable and not frightening to kids. I liked that the text rhymed as well and the illustrations were nice but a bit outdated looking in my opinion. I teach second grade at a Lutheran school and I read this with my class as one of our pre-Easter lessons and it lead to a great discussion about the events of Easter week like Palm Sunday and the Last Supper. I do think it could've added more detail and glosses over things a little too much, hence the 4 star rating.

While I think this book does an OK job of explaining Easter, I much prefer Patricia Pingry's "The Story of Easter" instead.

My step-children and husband are new Christians. This was purchased for EASTER. They should like it. I might place in EASTER baskets.
