Reviews - What do customers think about The Story of Easter (Trophy Picture Books)?
Balanced and beautiful Feb 20, 2005
As a non-Christian mother married to a Catholic man and raising a preschool daughter with a spiritual and philosophical (almost prophetic) bent toward Jesus, this book was a wonderful "meant to be" find. Written in the spirit of lovingkindness, compassion, honesty, respect and education toward and about all cultures, Fisher explains the story of Jesus' death and resurrection with great finesse, tact and mastery. Additionally, she includes the "pagan" symbols (Easter bunny, eggs, etc) that were embraced by early Christians in an effort to include all beliefs and the people who shared them. Stefano's Vitale's serene, luminous illustrations provide the perfect complement to Fisher's well-written text.
The story of Easter Mar 30, 2000
This book explains clearly Christ's role in Easter, and how Easter traditons relate to him. This book is able to get this message across in a very easy-to-understand way. I read this book to my sunday school class and they enjoyed the book very much. We also had fun doing some of the activites the book included. I liked this book very much, and I would suggests this book to anyone who is trying to explain the meaning of Easter in a very fun and understandable way.
