OVERVIEW



This is a lovely retelling of the Easter story, phrased for young children and embellished with colorful and vivid illustrations. The story is told simply and in an understanding way for its readers. Some of the pages start with See here- which is a little disconcerting but other than that quiddity, Jesus’ suffering, death and resurrection are all truthfully presented and in a way that will be a winner with three to five year olds.
