"The Story of Easter" by Gwen Ellis

"The Story of Easter" by Gwen Ellis and illustrated by Steve Smallman is a delightful children's book in the Read and Share collection. It tells the story of Easter in easy to understand terms, with plenty of pictures for little ones to look at. Some Bible verses are even given (reference, not exact quotations) so kids can feel the urge to look them up. At the end of the book, there is even a part where kids see pictures of the Easter story and can put them in order chronologically. Also, a DVD is included that uses 3D graphics that look almost like clay figurines to narrate the story of Easter plus a few other New Testament stories. The only thing left out if that the author says Jesus resurrected and showed Himself to women--the women are not named as they are in the Bible. Overall, this is a book that will make readers want to purchase the other Read and Share editions.
