Item description for Happy Easter by Susan Leigh...
Overview By introducing the young reader to the concept of Jesus' death and resurrection on Easter, this book is a tool for teaching about His sacrifice on our behalf and victory over sin and death in our place.
Community Description Very young children learn through experiences. What they see and do, what they hear and feel. Everything they know comes from their immediate surroundings and experiences.
Cognitive development of children two to three years old includes increasing self-awareness, recognizing that books are for reading, recognizing cause-and-effect, following two-step directions, imitating adults, performing simple chores and activities, and understanding spatial concepts like near and far, up and down. Until about the age of four, their world consists of the here and now; they cannot understand the distant past (such as Jesus' death and resurrection) or anticipate the future (such as going to heaven). Although self-awareness is increasing, a child is not aware of his personal guilt until about age five.
This board book teaches young children about their lives as Christians by showing photographs of familiar objects and activities related to Easter day. Using simple sentences and color photographs, Happy Easter acquaints the very young child to the routine of going to church, worshiping, celebrating with family and friends, and some traditions like hunting for Easter eggs.
