The Easter Story

Candle Read and Share

by Retold by Gwen Ellis, illustrations by Steve Smallman


Price: £3.99
Publisher:Candle Books imprint of Lion Hudson
Published:23 January 2009
As each part of the story is told, with its relevant Bible verses to refer to, a question is asked at the foot of the page to make sure the young person has understood what has been read. The story is told from Palm Sunday to the Ascension, expressively illustrated and simply told but with a surprising amount of detail. I particularly liked this retelling and highly recommend it.
