Come Celebrate Easter {a book review}

Come Celebrate Easter is a consumable (one time use) activity book for kids.  Within the 16 pages you will find short blurbs about Christ, starting with two sentences stating Jesus is the Son of God.  From there you will follow along with Jesus as he rides into Jerusalem on a donkey, prays in the garden, is arrested and crucified and then the book ends with His ascension into heaven.  In addition to the short story there are various puzzles or activities to complete, such as placing stickers, completing puzzles, connecting dots, tracing words or coloring.

This is intended to be used along with The Beginner's Bible, and as such you will find a couple questions that are not answered in the activity book, but found in your bible.  This isn't a bad thing as it gets you to read the story of Easter, from your bible, to your child while they are engaged in the workbook.

The pages are slightly glossy so you will need to use markers, not crayons or pencils.

I gave this to my daughter, age 4, to use and she loved it.  She wanted to work all the way to the end and happily listened to any short story in the workbook, and when she asked questions we read further in her bible.  (for the record, we used the Jesus Storybook Bible to read further as we do not own The Beginners Bible).

When she was done with this book she had extra stickers left over and used them to create separate stories on a sheet of paper.

I think this is an affordable and sweet way to engage in some fun learning and fine motor skill while also helping your child to learn about the real Easter Story.  The images were all nice.  Reverent when applicable, to portray the seriousness of the situation, but not too scary for young minds.
