The Story of Easter (Tommy Nelson) presents the story of Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem to His resurrection using passages from all four gospels and other New Testament passages. Each section of the story is shared in a two page spread. The illustrations clearly depcit the content for non-readers with facial expressions of the characters giving clues in each section. A statement or question follows each step of the journey encouraging interaction between parent and child.
A pictorial collection of events can be found at the end of the book for children to retell the story in their own words. What a perfect opportunity for children to share the heart of the gospel!
I was thrilled to find a DVD included with this book. Sunday school teachers and parents will enjoy the coloring sheets and short trailers perfect for this season. The collection of printables is perfect for varying levels of abililty.
While my children have outgrown picture books, I'm certain this one would have been in our home library. Want it in yours?
Leave a comment below including your favorite part of the Easter story. Be sure to leave your email address. One lucky winner will be chosen on Friday morning to recieve this lovely hardbound edition with DVD.
