Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Using Easter celebrations as her frame--and drawing on all four Gospels, Heyer presents a workmanlike compression of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus into a standard picture book format. Her vividly colored paintings are the book's best aspect, although Heyer interestingly chooses not to portray Jesus's face, concentrating instead on his hands. This may be a wise choice, as her illustrations of people are less successful than her generally convincing depiction of mood and place. More information on the Passion and Resurrection or discussion of the Easter symbols (rabbits, eggs, lilies, etc.) might have helped better focus the book on the holiday itself. The Easter Story can serve as a creditable catalyst for family discussions regarding the true meaning behind this important celebration. Ages 4-8. (Mar.)
