The Easter Story is part of My Very First Bible Stories published to high acclaim in 2003 and have been endearingly popular ever since.
This edition, with its bright illustrations and simple retelling of Jesus and the first Easter, is ideal for introducing preschool children to the essential Bible story.
Economically priced, this small and colourful children's Bible storybook is an ideal gift or give-away for prize-givings, outreach and mission in the Lent and Easter period. This little (5" x 4") Easter book is ideal for grown-ups to read aloud to their children and as a starter book for children to begin reading Bible stories for themselves.
In the back of the book there is also a Special Words page which explains some of the trickier words in the story such as 'Passover' and 'Temple'.
There is also a short prayer for children to pray at the end of the story. "In the Easter garden // we know that God above // brings us all to heaven // through Jesus and his love."
Clear, strong pictures not only help children remember the stories, they help grown-ups voice the story for the youngest children (2 years up), with simple words and sentences for those early 'read for myself years' of 4 to 6.
My Very First Bible has provided the basis for a number of additional Bible storybook series including board books, big books, sticker and activity books.
In the My Very First Bible Stories Series, 12 key Bible stories have now been made available as great value, little paperbacks, offering a smart way of collecting multiple books for use in groups and classes, for award-giving or for anyone wanting a pocket-money gift. The series includes: In the Beginning; Noah and the Ark; Moses and his Sister; Brave David; Jonah and the Whale; Daniel and the Lions; Baby Jesus; Jesus and the Storm; The Good Samaritan; The Lost Sheep; Our Father; and The Easter Story.
