I'll be looking for more from this publisher. I'd love suggestions for similar books.
The illustrations are beautifully done in what looks like watercolor and have a lot of details in them. I highly recommend this book for parents to explain the real meaning of Easter in a summarized, kid friendly way to young children!
The story gives a brief synopsis of who Jesus was and what He did as far as miracles and healings so the kids have a point of reference about the character in the story.
The amount of printed words on each page was very apprpriate for the age. My daughter wasn't anxious to get to the next page.
The artwork is beautiful. This book is very lavishly illustrated in full scale artwork, not just line drawings.
I would have liked to see a little more information given for 4+ year olds, but the reader can expound upon the story easily and add information as it is relevant. Overall, I was happy that my daughter developed a strong grasp of who Jesus is and started to recognize Him in other books and relate Him to dying eggs and hunting them.
I would highly recommend this for parents of young children.
