On Easter Day in the Morning

by Vickie Howie and Honor Ayres


Price: £6.99
Publisher:Barnabas imprint of BRF
Published:January 2011
I wish I had this book when my children and grandchildren were young! One of the very best I have seen for this age group. Repeated phrases such as pit-pat, pit-pat or left-right left-right, make this book a joy to read to a little one and they will, soon be joining in. The story starts with Jesus preaching and teaching and meeting with the little children, then moves on to the crucifixion which is not glossed over, but handled gently and sensitively before bursting into the joy of Easter and the resurrection. Aided by the illustrations, this is an excellent re-telling and highly recommended.
