Back in print with beautiful new illustrations: a Little Golden Book retelling of the Easter story.
This gentle introduction to the biblical account of Jesus's final days on earth, and Resurrection, is perfect for preschoolers. Lush, colorful illustrations of the Last Supper, Jesus carrying his cross, and the angel in the empty tomb are accessible to little readers who are just learning about Easter. At the end of the book, Easter traditions from around the world are introduced, from Ukrainian painted eggs (Pysanky) to the greeting of the Easter sunrise in the British Isles. It's a perfect first book about an important holiday for many, and an ideal Easter gift.
