The Lovereading4Kids comment

From the entry of Jesus and his disciples into the temple in Jerusalem, The Easter story, as told in the Bible, is retold in simple prose matched with atmospheric illustrations. How the different disciples, most notably Judas and Peter, behave when Jesus is arrested, the trial of Jesus first by Pontias Pilate and then by the crowd, the crucifixion and the resurrection after the death of Jesus are recounted in a clear narrative that concentrates on the story and presents it as true.


The Easter Story by Antonia Jackson

The book follows this important episode from Jesus's entry into Jerusalem right through to the resurrection. Giuliano Ferri's illustrations are peaceful, gentle and elegant, making this a sophisticated picture story book for older children.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
