The text in the book is inspired by the Bible with book and verse references on each page, but in a version that is easier for little ones to understand. The book has wonderful bright and colorful pictures that take you through Palm Sunday, The Last Supper, The Cross, The Resurrection and more. On each page, there are hidden pictures for your little ones to find. This is fun and makes the story interactive, while also encouraging extra learning and communication. I also love that the edges of the pages have tabs with pictures on them relating to the part of the Easter story that page portrays.
This is a perfect book for reading to your little ones around the Easter season, which is now! Since it's a board book with tabs, your little one can hold it easily and entertain themselves by looking at the pictures and finding them in the story. I would definitely recommend it!
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program.
~ What ~
This numbered twelve-page board book with rounded corners and five page-tabs targets children ages four to eight years old who enjoy the story of Jesus’s resurrection. With the left side of the pages being pale colored backgrounds with a sentence or two about Jesus, underneath are eight colorful objects with their names listed. The opposite pages are detailed and colorful illustrations that match the story and contain each of the objects to find.
The simple story includes Jesus’s triumphant entrance into Jerusalem on a donkey, His last supper with the disciples, being betrayed in the garden by Judas, nailed to a cross, His glorious resurrection, and afterward seeing His friends.
~ Why ~
Having several grandchildren who live out of state, I cannot wait to share this cute and fun book with them because they love to match up duplicate pictures. I like how the illustrations are colorful while being easy to identify with some of the same items included again on other pages. It reinforces the Easter story while searching for objects in the artwork.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not believe in Christ or have a personal relationship with Him will probably avoid this book that contains Christ’s death (the illustration thoughtfully shows Him on the cross from a side view). Some beginner readers may have trouble reading the book by themselves.
~ Wish ~
It would help if some of the complicated wording were easier to understand for beginner readers. I wish all pronouns of God were capitalized for reverence.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for an engaging children’s book that is interactive with objects to find in the illustrations, this makes an excellent choice in time for Easter.
Thanks to Z Blog Squad for this book to read and review.
Ready, Set, Find Easter is a children’s story and activity book. It is a board book, though the pages are a bit thinner and more flexible than some board books. The book has ten pages, and each set of two pages features a brief narrative and picture key on the left-facing page and an illustration on the right-facing page. For example, one left-facing page discusses how Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, along with a picture key of eight things to find in the illustration on the right-facing page: bowls, palm branch, bag, flour sack, orange, palm tree, dog, and boy.
The book is designed in a simplistic manner, and would probably be best for 2 and 3-year-olds. The characters look like cartoonized clay figures. The sentences are constructed at a very basic level, such as: Jesus and his friends were having supper together. They shared bread and wine. But Jesus said that one of his friends was going to betray him. (The authors also include the passage reference, Matthew 26: 17 – 30.)
The best thing about this book is that it gets children interested in the Easter story, by combining the Biblical account of Easter with the fun activity of locating pictures in the illustrations.
*I received this book for review*
The pictures are very well illustrated and perfect for little ones to relate to. Along with each illustration is the Bible passage describing the picture, making this a perfect activity for young kids and a great way to teach them about the reason for the holiday. Keeping Christ in Easter can sometimes be difficult especially with little kids; the excitement of candy and the Easter Bunny can easily be distracted for young minds, adding in a Christ themed activity such as this can be the perfect way to remind them of the true Easter story, and why it is so important.
I would recommend this book for any young child. This would make a wonderful Christmas gift or a great night before Christmas activity.
