We're very particular about our child's spiritual education. This book is excellent to teach preschoolers a straightforward synopsis of the Bible's Easter story and its significance. It's written on a child's level, but doesn't get caught up in cutesy stuff that would detract from the gravity of the story. It even includes scenes not usually covered in children's books, like Palm Sunday, washing the disciples' feet, praying in the garden, and appearing to the disciples after resurrection. I love that it 1. teaches who Jesus is and what he did, 2. pairs nicely with sermons/lessons leading up to and after Easter, 3. doesn't shy away from talk of death, but isn't scary, 4. devotes several pages to the resurrection and new life (that is the point, after all).
I'll be looking for more from this publisher. I'd love suggestions for similar books.
