Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Sharing the story of Easter with a young child becomes an interactive event with text and repetitive rebus pictures. Even non-readers will feel encouraged to "read" along with the simple text and colorful drawings. The story of Jesus's death on the cross becomes a miracle when he lives again and goes to heaven to watch over us and forgive us for our sins. The crucifixion and resurrection become personal with first person dialogue and catchy "for me!" phrases. Because Jesus has risen from the dead, Christians find many symbols to remind them of new life. Eggs, butterflies, and flowers represent rebirth. Children are encouraged to use senses to smell and see these objects and to also "make a joyful noise" in celebration. Bible verses provide captions for the full color illustrations. 2000, Bethany House, Ages 3 to 6, $3.99. Reviewer: Laura Hummel
