Spring is all about new life. What better way to show that to little readers than an adorable touch-and-feel board book? An Easter Prayer, by Amy Parker and illustrated by Alison Edgson, wonderfully captures this spirit.
Eggs, chicks, and bunnies are common symbols of Easter. In An Easter Prayer, we follow an adorable little bunny and baby chick in giving thanks for all the wonders of Spring. First for new birth, then for grass and sun and rain. Finally, for the resurrection of Jesus.
I adore the illustrations in An Easter Prayer. The bunny and chick are simply some of the cutest little animals I’ve seen in a children’s book. They also excellently illustrate the sentence given on each spread. One downside is that the touch-and-feel aspects are small. But the rest of the pictures easily make up for that.
An Easter Prayer is a great introduction to springtime and Eastertide. Little readers will enjoy the pictures and the simple sentences of thanks. This is an exciting time of year and a spirit of gratefulness is a perfect way to celebrate the season.
