The Story of Easter- A Book Review
Based on the International Children's Bible, this story walks through the last week of Christ's life and is told in a way that teaches children about the amazing gift Jesus gave us. Events include His triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday through His appearance to the disciples and His ascension. The "Can You Retell the Story" activity at the end of the book is a fun way to hide the Word in their heart.
The animated DVD includes a 15-minutes of stories plus coloring pages and other bonus features.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com <http://BookSneeze.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 <http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_03/16cfr255_03.html> : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
I'm happy to be able to tuck this away for a surprise on Easter morning. I read it today while the kids are at school and I'm pleased with the bright colored pictures and easy to read format. It tells the story of how Easter came about very simply for children., my 11 yr old will be able to read it to her brother and sister with ease. The DVD which was included was put together nicely and the stories were informative and easy to follow. This is one book which will be displayed every Easter from now on!
Now here is a fast question....What if any books or video's do you share on Easter?
