This is a children's picture book edition of the best-selling adult book of the same title. Using illustrations and age-appropriate text, this children's edition features passages of scripture along with original text to tell the Easter story and provides ideas for family traditions that young children can understand to make the holiday more Christ-centered. Each spread uses at least one person from the Easter story—including Simon, Joseph and Nicodemus, Mary Magdalene, the disciples on the road to Emmaus, and Thomas—to illustrate a theme. For example, the story begins with Jesus' entry into Jerusalem before Passover and describes the scene as Jesus' followers filled His path with palm branches and leaves. Then the book presents a question for the child to ponder: "On the first Easter, people found ways to celebrate Jesus. Could you?" Combining biblical text with a beautiful story line and wonderfully charming, full-color illustrations, this book will help make Christ the focus of your celebrations this year.

Celebrating a Christ-Centered Easter: Children's Edition based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is such a sweet story for children. I love Easter. I love to teach my kids the real meaning of Easter. Not that having eggs hunts and Easter baskets aren't fun, I just want them to recognize the reason for the season. This book has such beautiful illustrations about the Easter. Each scripture reference comes with an activity that you can do with your family to make Easter more meaningful. I wish my kids were still little, but I am still going to make them do some of them with me anyway. If you have children this is a great book to pick up and read with them, and then do the activities as a family. Easter is beautiful. The Savior is beautiful. This is such a sweet story.
