My Little Easter Story

Christina Goodings, illus. by Claudine Gévry. Lion (IPG, dist.), $6.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-7459-6927-5
Goodings simplifies the message of Jesus Christ for preschoolers (“Love one another... Forgive others”) before recounting the events of Passion Week that culminate in the crucifixion of the “troublemaker” Jesus and his Easter resurrection. Angels and animal figures throughout make a difficult story for young ones more child-friendly. Gévry’s soothing color palette is mostly the green of spring and new life, and her art is the best part of this introduction to the traditional Easter story. Ages 3–5. (Jan.)
