Read and Share The Story of Easter Retold by Gwen Ellis, Illustrated by Steve Smallman Review

From the Read and Share Bible brand, this retelling of the Easter story is explained in a way that helps young children understand the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.

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.

My favorite features:

  • conversation starting, thought provoking questions making it easy to have discussions with your children about the story
  • scripture references
  • retell the story activity with mixed up illustrations
  • animated DVD includes 15-minutes of stories plus coloring pages and other bonus features
This is a wonderful Easter book for children ages 3-8. It is a fantastic buy at only $10.99 list price for the hardbound book and DVD.

I received this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers at no cost to review and evaluate. All opinions expressed are my own and I was not paid for this post.
