My problem is the content. I thought with this newer edition the author might have done better, because compared to the older version, I was surprised to see that they are really exactly the same.
The title in comparison to the content is very vague. The book is a total of 22 pages, and out of this precious limited number of pages come in 6 pages of the actual story of easter.
The 6 page story of the easter turns out as: first 2 pages – Jesus sits on a donkey and the people wave palms, next 2 pages- mild portrait of the crucifixion, next 2 pages – angel appearing to the women “Jesus has risen!”. That is all.
2 pages at the starting point tell about SPRING and babies born or so, and my small child came out bored just by listening and looking at the pictures of baby animals. Next 2 pages touch the word easter and Jesus. The pictures include children playing under the rain, beside a pond. How uninteresting. All the rest of the pages talk about Jesus being good, and oh, there’s a church and there’s a cross, kind of thing. Though related, these are not totally easter story. There are a whole of other choices out there if you’re not into the gruesome details, but this does not cover the story of easter.
If the book was meant to “bridge” the biblical story with the present generation easter celebration, and serve as an “introduction” to the easter story, then the title is far from appropriate.
