The First Easter by Lois Rock


The First Easter by Lois Rock

This book tells the story of the last week of Jesus's life, simply and straightforwardly faithful to the biblical accounts of his death and resurrection. The charming illustrations by Sophie Allsopp respectfully complement the great story, adding detail and warmth that will be appreciated by adult and child alike. This little hardback is a beautiful but very accessible presentation of the Easter story, which makes a thoughtful little gift.


'Lion have yet again come up with a gem. Soulful simplicity and sympathetic illustrations make The First Easter a pleasure and relief to read to a young child.' (Christian Aid)
