Every Easter, we celebrate that Jesus is more powerful than death. But what does that mean for your little one? Jesus Rose for Me by author Jared Kennedy helps toddlers and preschoolers understand the true meaning of Easter in a personal, memorable way. This board book is a part of The Beginner’s Gospel Story Bible series. For children ages three to seven, this beautifully illustrated book begins with Palm Sunday and ends with Easter, when…

This well-done educational story begins with a quick and clever recap of Jesus’ followers and miracles. The heart of the story follows Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem, the Last Supper, including an explanation of communion, and the passion of Christ. It falls short of a full explanation of the resurrection by only describing that the tomb was empty. There’s a lot of information packed into a well-written children’s book.

Additional educational features are Bible verse references and questions to the reader that help children relate the story to their own lives. Complex concepts are presented in child-friendly language, such as… Everyone who trusts Jesus is part of His forever family.

Jesus Rose for Me is perfect for an Easter gift or for a Christian classroom library. It would make a great tool for explaining the foundation of Christianity to little learners.
