Title: THE FIRST EASTER EVER
Illustrator: Dennis Jones
Publisher: Zonderkidz
February 2015
ISBN:  978-0310740841
Genre:  Nonfiction / Bible story / Beginning readers

A simple retelling of the Easter story, this small and affordable format paperback, The First Easter Ever is  sure to be popular with young readers. Using the vibrant and popular artwork of Dennis Jones, families can share this timeless story of God’s promise of everlasting love each Easter season..

THE FIRST EASTER EVER  is simply written for beginning readers. It has a comic book feel, with Jesus kind of portrayed as a superhero in the illustrations. The story also felt rather clinical, a simple repeating of the facts, and just the facts, ma’am. No blood was illustrated, but some of the pictures were rather violent, too. That is real, and powder-puffed from reality, but some of more sensitive children might be disturbed by the images.

My daughters both enjoyed reading through this and reading the Bible story. Would be perfect for a baby gift, or for a beginning reader, or to pick up a copy now for next year’s Easter basket for your favorite little one.

3 stars. Available in paperback and ebook. 32 pages. Ages birth - 8
