That Grand Easter Day Book Review

This beautifully illustrated book by Jill Lord tells the story of the resurrection of Jesus in a wonderful, light-hearted way.

The story builds up with a list of persons and animals who all contribute to the verse of this story which repeats the story from beginning to end in a rhythmical way.  This is a wonderful book to celebrate Easter with your children.  It is a perfect book to teach the story of the resurrection to little ones and also perfect for Sunday school and CCD teachers to read to the classroom. This book is recommended for children 4-7 years of age.

That Grand Easter Day! is a cumulative story that begins with the stone in front of the tomb and ends with a new beginning—the Resurrection of Christ. The lively narrative builds as it progresses, adding people, objects, and animals that may have witnessed the events of that day long ago. Little ones will love the repetition, which adds a pleasing level of predictability and helps to make the story of the first Easter more memorable. The upbeat, reverent story is accompanied by luminous illustrations which bring the story to life. This engaging picture book will be a read-aloud favorite at Eastertime and throughout the year.
