That Grand Easter Day: Review

That Grand Easter Day

Easter? I know, it seems ages away. But, it is April 1 this year, which is just seven weeks away. Time to bring out the spring Easter decor, and of course, the Easter books!

Today, I want to show you a beautiful new Easter book for kids: That Grand Easter Day.

That Grand Easter Day

This is a beautiful hardcover book with dust jacket. Really, it’s like a “coffee table book” for kids. That means that I probably would not give it to a preschooler, unless you plan to just read it to him or her. And honestly, books like this provide a good teaching opportunity. Talk to little kids about the importance of treating books with respect. When they’re little, there’s probably not much you can do to prevent chewing, etc. But as they get a bit older, they can learn.

This book follows the pattern of “there was an old lady who swallowed a fly.” So, it’s repetitive. That’s a great thing for helping kids learn about the patterns of language — how it sounds, and how to read it. An example:

…startled the man who fled with a zoom — leaving the bunny that munched on a bloom, alone by the stone that was now rolled away, revealing the place where Jesus first lay, before he arose on that grand Easter Day!

The illustrations are lovely, featuring pastel, muted shades that are calming. The first and last pages have Bible verses.

This is a wonderful book to give to a child for Easter. It’s certainly more lasting — and of more lasting value — than a chocolate rabbit!
