What little boy or girl would not like to find this book in their Easter basket? This is a beautiful book about the true meaning of Easter.  It is written in words that little babies can understand. Cute little sheep and ducklings share the story of Jesus love and is alive forever. Among the stories and poems is an Easter egg hunt that will keep the children coming back year after year to discover new things.

Very cute illustrations, great story, and easy to follow along for the young reader. Appropriate for a range of ages. Would be a great gift to include in the easter basket for a young one. I think my favorite part about this book was the illustrations by far. They made me hope for spring to get here soon. :)

This Christian Easter board book is a celebration of new beginnings, hope, and the true meaning of Easter.  The die-cut Easter basket-shaped book with a glittered cover and handle is full of poems, bible verses and prayers for little ones to enjoy.  This book is part of the DaySpring's "Really Woolly" series, all of which are exemplary.  Written in rhyme it highlights God's promises using sweet adorable characters throughout.  It explains to a wee one how spring brings new life to the world around them and reflects the meaning of Jesus's resurrection at Easter time.  

This book would be perfect to tuck into an Easter basket and shared with the entire family.  The book highlights the happiness of the season.  Babies, toddlers, and preschoolers will love handling the cute shaped book themselves as they discover that Jesus is alive... He is alive indeed!  I highly recommend this book and the others in the series.

As it is nearing the end of the year, I figured to try and clean my Netgalley shelf and start fresh for 2022 and since I had a few children's books, they are easy to read as your multi-task as I was reading them as I watched FBI season 4 at the same time. My First Easter book is a cute board book for children explaining the joys of Easter time. As this book is set in the US, during Easter time for them it is the season of new beginnings and green grass, new animals being born, and a season of sunshine and run as it is Springtime. Whereas since I live in New Zealand, for us Easter time is Autumn - when things are slowly getting ready to die for Winter and animals are going into hibernation, etc. This was a cute colorful read and shows how Easter time is a joyous occasion and all the many things to celebrate besides the Easter Bunny and chocolate. Each page is also accompanied by a short bible verse and on the opposite page, how the bible verse relates to Easter and Springtime. This would make a good resource for Sunday School and perfect for children aged 0-4 years old.

This book is so colorful and happy!  I love that it has bible verses on each page and I love how the verses go along with the paragraphs and illustrations on each page.  The animal characters really pull you into the story and keeps the little ones interested.  This is a great book to read around Easter and springtime.  I will recommend this book to all my family and friends that have little ones!
*****I received an ARC from NetGalley, the publisher, and the author, in turn for my honest review.

An atheist reports...  While I have no truck with the idea of indoctrinating toddlers and pre-schoolers with religion, I can at least see the merit of this volume.  It's a pretty board book, full of cute and quaint springtime scenes.  For every spread the text follows the same form – a one-verse quote from the Bible on the left, and very nice poetry conveying the rest on the right – each time a four line poem, and a follow-on which has more of the flavour of a prayer.  Nurturing rains, new beginnings – and of course the man upstairs – all get an appreciation.  No loss of effort has gone into making this – not only is it a pretty thing, but the fact it is die-cut to not look like one of those square old fuddy-duddy books, and not only that but it also has a kind of carry-handle cut out the top of every page.  I can easily foresee Sunday School staff rehanging it to a new page every day of Holy Week.
