About the book...

This delightful board book, written in rhyme, is a perfect celebration of the resurrection of Jesus that little ones will totally understand.  

"Jesus is alive!
Happily we sing!
Come together everyone!
Jesus is our King!"

The colourful, happy illustrations portray children of many different cultures oozing with happiness and engaging in the world around them.  You can feel the love they have for each other and everyday life in general as you read along from page to page.   The author has inserted tiny squared illustrations of the burial tomb of Jesus in the corner of some of the pages. The huge stone that sealed his tomb is rolled away signifying that He has risen and returned to His rightful home in heaven.  These added mini pictures give parents an opportunity to relate the Biblical meaning of Easter to their kids.  

I love all the little creatures that God created represented in this tale. They are depicted so well.  The diverse selection of children surrounded by these adorable baby animals are ecstatic as they go about their daily lives free to worship the risen Saviour of the world at this very special time of year.   I highly recommend this book.

About the author/illustrator...

Crayons, seashells, bikes, tree forts, and neighbour friends fill my childhood memories. Creativity and out-of-the-box fun was our family’s specialty. How many kids get to march around the block wearing pajamas and eating ice cream?
Whether it needed car parts, paper-mache, paint, or pianos . . . our home revolved around creative projects.
It’s a beautiful thing to see this creative legacy carried out in the homes of our four children. They buzz with wood working, garden planting, encaustic painting, scarf knitting, film editing, letter writing, coffee roasting, card creating, cookie baking, mudpie making . . . and new grandbabies!
But the most enduring value of our family legacy is the foundational understanding that loving God means loving people.
Marriage to a man of integrity and compassion has deepened my understanding of what this love means.
As the national ministry director for InFaith, Gordon has led our family in ministries from kids Bible clubs on the Mexican border to refugee outreach, from nursing homes to inner city student ministries, from reconstruction in New Orleans to country churches, from Japan to our own neighbourhood.
Creating books has sprouted out of my interactions with children, especially my own! Becoming a Mom has wonderfully changed me forever, expanding my capacity to laugh, cry and pray. Now as a kindergarten teacher, I daily experience the joy and responsibility of caring for young children – little individuals with God-given potential. Undeniably, loving God means loving people – no matter the size!

In her own words...
"Pause, close your eyes, stretch, breathe deep and soak in the truth that the Creator of the universe created you in His own image.  Beyond our comprehension in total, we can appreciate this truth in part.  God’s creativity is a part of us.  Not to be wasted, this creative potential is to be celebrated and cultivated.  Together let’s explore the possibilities!  Let’s shine with hope-infused creativity and make the ultimate wonder of Jesus Christ’s love and power known."
