Grandma Tell Me the Easter Story written by Marlene L Burling and illustrated by Greg L. Smalley is a personalized children’s picture book with a religious theme. It’s designed for grandparents encouraged to teach their grandchildren the spiritual account of the Easter story from the Bible. The child’s name can be inserted in the blanks throughout the story’s telling, and each page contains a scripture for reference. The book starts with the grandchildren asking their grandmother to tell them her favorite story. She tells them the Easter story and introduces them to Jesus, the Son of God, with the scripture taken from John 3: 16,17; God loved the world so much He sent His own Son to die for the sins of all the people in the world; to die for you. From the Passover to the resurrection of Jesus, this story should be told to children of all ages.
Marlene L Burling’s Grandma Tell Me the Easter Story is an engaging way to teach children God’s Word. I find the beautiful black-and-white illustrations effective and appropriate because these emphasize the story being told. Undoubtedly, children raised with a well-developed spiritual life are found to be happier, more optimistic, and better equipped with life’s challenges. As such, this book should be an excellent help for grandparents, parents, and teachers in introducing spirituality to children early on. With all its distractions, the digital age has added new challenges in nurturing children’s spiritual lives, so it’s important to start when they are young. Grandma Tell Me the Easter Story is a perfect book to introduce kids to God’s love for them. Highly recommended!
