    I have looked at a lot of children's Easter's books over the years and this is the best current book for preschoolers that I have seen. It is an introduction to the meaning of Easter - but there are no details about Jesus' death. There aren't a lot of words on each page. The only criticism is that the vocabulary could have been simpler, but still the author did a good job. Read the other reviews for more info.

    Fun touch and feel Easter story

    Little kids love touch-and-feel books, so it was with delight that my 4 year old and I read The First Easter Day by Jill Roman Lord. This is a very simple book that begins with a picture of a little boy and his family walking to a white steeple church:

    "We celebrate at Eastertime

    when Jesus rose again.

    I wonder what I would have done

    if I had lived back then."

    The following pages have the child imagining that if he'd been a bee, he would have buzzed to spread the news "that Jesus is alive;" if he'd been a frog, he would have bellowed hallelujahs; if he'd been a bunny, he would have hopped to rejoice over the "risen Lord;" if he'd been a butterfly, he would have flitted his wings to "see the living King of kings;" if he'd been the sun, he would have pointed his raise to Jesus; if he'd been a kitten, he would have snuggled in his lap and "savored being with Him." On each page, there is a touch-and-feel element.

    The last page goes back to the boy in church, admitting he's none of those things.

    "I'm part of God's Creation who

    can jump and shout with glee

    and celebrate that Christ arose

    to give new life to me!

    Thank you, Jesus!"

    What I Like: My child enjoyed the touch-and-feel elements, to be sure. So much, we had to read the book repeatedly before he really listened to the story. Then, he enjoyed the idea of imagining what it would be like to be all those different animals (or the sun) and see Jesus rise.

    What I Dislike: If your child is unfamiliar with the Easter story, don't expect this book to clue him or her in. The author assumes your child knows that Jesus died and rose again - and why.

    How can we introduce little ones to the magnificence of Easter? Place a Jill Roman Lord book in their hands. In The First Easter Day, Lord offers a board book complete with tactile samples to engage the fussiest "reader." Developmentally, a child is primed to experience the colors, textures, and message of Easter joy through this medium. If you want the perfect gift to place in the hands of a neighbor, a child, or grandchild, then look no further. The First Easter Day awaits!

    What would I have done if I had lived back then?

    "The First Easter Day" is a delightful "touch-and-feel" board book for the very young child. It is a light hearted introduction to the resurrection of Christ for younger children.

    The child wonders "what I would have done if I had lived back then." Written in rhyme each page features a critter - insect, frog, bunny, etc. And each critter has a "touch-and-feel" spot on the page that engages the attention of the child.

    "And if I'd been a bunny,

    I'd have hopped with all my might,

    rejoicing in the risen Lord

    and showing my delight."

    Author Jill Roman Lord has touched the heart of a child with sweet rhymes, and the illustrations by Michelle Henninger are soft, finely drawn, and very cheerful and pleasant. Sure to capture the attention of the child. (rev. V.Godley)
