A board book using illustrations from God's Big Promises Bible Storybook to teach 1-3-year-olds the Easter story.

Using simple sentences and stunning illustrations from God's Big Promises Bible Storybook, this board book takes toddlers through the story of the first Easter, showing what happened and that King Jesus is alive again.

The God's Big Promises Easter Board Book features:
• a robust board-book format.
• stunning illustrations from the God's Big Promises Bible Storybook, which will engage young children.
• simple sentences that communicate truths in a way toddlers can understand.
• content that provides a basic understanding of the events of the first Easter for children aged 1-3.

This foundational book makes a perfect gift for toddlers.

This board book introduces Easter to young children, with simple text from Carl Laferton and colorful illustrations from Jennifer Davison. This contains adapted material from the God’s Big Promises Bible Storybook, simplifying the content for younger children while still covering the whole story.

I am impressed with how thorough this sixteen-page board book is. It spans from Palm Sunday to Jesus’s resurrection and reunion with his friends, and it covers a lot of details in between, even Jesus’s conversation with the repentant thief dying on the cross next to him. God’s Big Promises: Easter for Little Ones is short and simple, and it bypasses multiple violent details while still honest about the reality of Good Friday.

I appreciate how this book balances age-appropriateness and accuracy, instead of just rushing to the resurrection. This book also conveys a gospel message, teaching that Jesus is our king, and that because of his death, we can be friends with God and live forever. I would recommend this to families with young children who are looking for a faithful, thorough portrayal of the Easter story.
