Children’s Corner — Sunrise, Easter Surprise!

19 Feb

A lively Easter board book depicting the joy that spread with the news of Jesus’ Resurrection.

All of creation is alive with the news: Jesus lives! From chirping birds to chattering rabbits to buzzing bees, the pages of this Easter board book spill over with joy. With cheerful verse and lighthearted-yet-reverent illustrations, Sunrise, Easter Surprise! imagines Jesus’ Resurrection from the perspectives of those who might have seen and heard of it first: the sun as it rose, a flower as it bloomed, and the first people at the empty tomb. This exuberant Easter book offers even the littlest listener a better understanding of what the Resurrection means to all creation: new life through Jesus. Ages 2-5.

My Impressions:

Hannah Hall writes the best children’s books! They are whimsical, yes, but also have a great message of God’s love and promises. In the board book, Sunrise, Easter Surprise!, all of creation is bursting to share the news of Jesus’ resurrection. I loved the rhyming verse that highlights each little creature — bunnies, bees, lambs, and flowers — and its eager anticipation. The colorful illustrations will capture your child’s attention while a message of the Easter story is told in easy to understand terms. And if your grown-up heart scoffs at such a story, just remember what God’s word says:

But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. (Job 12-7-10)

Sunrise, Easter Surprise! is the perfect book to introduce small children to the wonder that is the empty tomb. While it would make a great addition to an Easter basket, this one really should be brought out early and often!

Highly Recommended.

Audience: kids ages 2-5.
