My Easter Basket: And the True Story of Easter Sep 18, 2006
Excellent introduction to the Easter account in terms toddlers and preschoolers can understand.
great book Mar 14, 2004
Nice way to combine modern Easter traditions and the real Easter story. The pictures on the this site site don't really show the glitter on the book well. The colors are really vibrant, and the glitter sparkles on every page.
Excellent Book! Mar 14, 2004
First of all, this book just looks fun! It is shaped, has many bright colors, and it SPARKLES!! This is a book that you will not mind reading several times. It also has a great message. It begins with, "The colors in this basket are my own special way for me to tell the story of that first Easter Day." Kids will hear the TRUE story of Easter in a fun, colorful way. By using the many colors commonly found in Easter baskets, the author takes us through the entire Easter story. From the green palm leaves, to the purple wine, to the red blood, to the brown cave, to the white angel, to the yellow sun. Each section is presented in rhyming format. "The purple in my basket reminds me of the time that Jesus shared with his friends a meal of bread and wine." In addition, the children depicted in this book are very diverse, which is an added bonus. This book shows asian, black, white, and biracial children, all experiencing the love of Jesus. A unique and welcome accomplishment.
