The Angel and the Dove

A Story for Easter

by Sophie Piper, illustrations by Kristina Stephenson


Padded Hardback
Price: £6.99
Published:20 February 2009
A charming way to introduce 3-5 year olds to the idea of the resurrection. A little angel in a garden talks to a nesting dove. The angel and the dove are watching out for the signs of the coming spring; flowers opening, butterflies emerging into the sunshine, all is happy and bright. Then one day all becomes sad and gloomy, a woman is crying, and the angel and the dove wait, and wait, until all is joyful again. The dove’s eggs hatch, the woman is laughing and yes! Jesus is alive again!
