Review for first edition from - February 2008 This is more of a puzzle book than a craft book. It combines a clear retelling of the Easter story with full colour illustrations and a variety of puzzles and games designed to hold children's interest and encourage them to look at the pictures in more detail. Review for first edition from The Methodist Recorder - Thursday 31 January 2008 THE mysteries of Easter are offered to the youngest members of the Church family by the Barnabas imprint of the Bible Reading Fellowship (brf) in two guises. For a slightly older age group there is Easter Days - My First Bible activity book, 32 pages packed with things to find, count, draw, shade and discover through joining the dots which again tell the story from Palm Sunday to the time when the risen Jesus prepares fish for his friends on the lakeside.
