That Grand Easter Day review and giveaway!
An engaging picture book about the first Easter Day, with a fun cumulative story structure
That Grand Easter Day!is a cumulative story that begins with the stone in front of the tomb and ends with a new beginning -- the Resurrection of Christ. The lively narrative builds as it progresses, adding people, objects, and animals that may have witnessed the events of that day long ago. Little ones will love the repetition, which adds a pleasing level of predictability and helps to make the story of the first Easter more memorable.
The upbeat, reverent story is accompanied by luminous illustrations which bring the story to life. This engaging picture book will be a read-aloud favorite at Eastertime and throughout the year. Ages 4-7.
My thoughts: This is a fun story to read around Easter time, since I love the illustrations and how the story builds on itself as it goes. My children enjoyed the drive of the story, as it introduced the reader to the tomb, then the guard, and the ladies who went to prepare Jesus' body. I love how it presents the message of Jesus' resurrection! This would be wonderful to read over Easter.
I received a copy of this book from Worthy in exchange for my honest review.
