The forest friends are so busy decorating their hot air balloon; will they forget the part that really matters?
It’s time for the annual spring festival in the forest. The forest friends have a very big idea: to make a hot air balloon to celebrate! As each animal goes to work, they focus on making the balloon look very special and fancy on the outside. Disagreements pop up about how to make it the perfect balloon. But the real trouble comes when they forget to think beyond appearances—to the warmth it needs inside to soar high in the air.
An Easter Gift from Jesus is the follow-up to the heartwarming storybooks A Birthday Party for Jesus, Everyone Is Invited to Christmas, A Christmas Pageant for Jesus, and An Easter Egg Hunt for Jesus. Beautifully illustrated by Lee Holland, this picture book will offer young children a fun, relatable story of forest friends who realize that it’s only through Jesus that we rise, and that we need His love to fill us up.
