"The First Easter Day" by Jill Roman Lord & illustrated by Michelle Henninger

"The First Easter Day" is a delightful "touch-and-feel" board book for the very young child.  It is a light hearted introduction to the resurrection of Christ for younger children.

The child wonders "what I would have done if I had lived back then."  Written in rhyme each page features a critter - insect, frog, bunny, etc.  And each critter has a "touch-and-feel" spot on the page that engages the attention of the child.
"And if I'd been a bunny,
I'd have hopped with all my might,
rejoicing in the risen Lord
and showing my delight."
Author Jill Roman Lord has touched the heart of a child with sweet rhymes, and the illustrations by Michelle Henninger are soft, finely drawn, and very cheerful and pleasant.  Sure to capture the attention of the child. (rev. V.Godley)
