Editorial Review

"A sweet story that celebrates new life in flowers, trees, little creatures, and Jesus. Every page is filled with joy for little hearts and minds."
(Crystal Bowman, best-selling, award-winning author of over 100 books for children including Our Daily Bread for Kids)

From the Back Cover

The old is gone! The new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17 NIrV

Unwrapping the Story

"Good News! It's Easter! is the first in a series of three adorable board books published by Discovery House.  Written in rhyme by the best-selling author of "Love Letters from God",  the story is simple and reveals the beauty and power of Easter.   It proclaims the good news of the resurrection of Jesus. 

"As the book concludes, Jesus becomes the ultimate example of new life as He rises from the tomb to overcome death and brings the gift of salvation!" 

 It is a wonderful introduction to the Easter message that little ones will understand.   It would be a lovely gift to give and to share as we celebrate the reason why many families celebrate Easter. 

The delightful illustrations are colourful, vibrant and happy.  I highly recommend this book.
