This is a very short book and is written in a way that is understandable to children, covering briefly the story of Jesus and the crucifixion and also the ministry of the disciples, charmingly illustrated.
I had some mixed feelings about this book, but mostly it was okay and seemed okay to read to kids. The story of the crucifixion seemed to be given very little time, and not surprisingly, all of the graphic details were watered down, but it still seemed a bit weird that the main Easter story was made to seem so minor, and it didn't really explain the purpose of Jesus' sacrifice.
Other than this, my only complaint was that it did not explain that Saul changed his name to Paul, making the last few sections a bit confusing for anyone who didn't know that.
Overall, a good way to get young kids into understanding the Easter story, but at the same time, not the best.
Next book: Little Lord Fauntleroy (Frances Hodgson Burnett)
