On That Easter Morning [Hardcover] Review

On That Easter Morning [Hardcover]Here is a picture book for older children that retells the biblical Easter story. It's beautiful pictures have a gentle feel, even when dealing with harsh parts of the story. Starting with Palm Sunday, it goes on to tell of Jesus driving out the money changers, washing the feet of his disciples, sharing the Last Supper with them, and then of his arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane. We read of the trial that convicted Jesus, the crucifixion, and then of his body being laid in a tomb by those who loved him. The gentle joy of Easter morning, that builds more and more as the good news is spread, is depicted in soft colors, and art that has delightful elements of both realistic and folk art. This story is nicely done, a lovely way to enjoy the Easter story. I love the ending sentiment: "The dark power of death was defeated. God's own love lit the world on that Easter morning."
