Review: This book is wonderful for teaching your child about Easter, it is told in a simple way but shares all the vital parts of his story and if his rising.
The story showed how Jesus was just carrying in doing what God had asked of him, but found that these people weren’t all accepting and thus it all went array and they wanted to kill him.
I really liked the way it was told, with the illustrations to go with it showing the story as it went on. It made the story really fun and easy to follow and understand. If you are teaching your child about God and Jesus then this would certainly be a perfect book to read with them.
