Overview

Pamela Kennedy deftly weaves a touching story of the first Easter, as seen through the eyes of a boy named Micah. Micah, returning from checking on a nest of birds� eggs in the garden, hears sad news from his mother-their friend Jesus has been killed. Micah is upset and frightened by the news. Several days later, back in the garden, he overhears a man telling a group of women that Jesus is alive. Micah then witnesses another miracle: One of the speckled eggs was cracked. When he looked more closely, Micah saw a tiny beak poking out of the shell. The egg was beginning to hatch! "Jesus is alive, little bird!" Micah whispered. "You don�t have to hide! It�s safe to come out of your shell now because Jesus is alive!" Filled with rich, detailed illustrations, this imaginative retelling of the first Easter is sure to be a new favorite.
