This is a great Easter book to explain to kids the significance of Easter and the true meaning behind it. The book says for 3+ years (I think it tech locally says 3-8 years) so I purchased for my soon-to-be 3-year-old and found the book to be too long and uses wording that is too complex for her to understand so I would recommend purchasing for a 4 or even 5-year-old at the minimum. That being said I certainly do NOT regret my purchase as my children will enjoy and understand it in years to come. The illustrations are sweet and well done. It is a larger book (see pic for size comparison next to hand) and is hard cover.
