An Easter Treasure for Your Family

by : Lisa M. Hendey

As the story plays out, we follow the Passion story from the moment of the agony in the Garden, through the Crucifixion, and ultimately Jesus' Resurrection. Most children's books that I've seen on this topic can be rather frightening, but Bosco and illustrator Patricia Mattozzi have managed to relay the story of Jesus' death in a manner which is gentle and not frightening. Mattozzi's illustrations are wonderful, luminescent depictions that warm the beautiful tale Bosco has crafted.

The book's subtitle rightly calls this "An Easter Legend", for there are indeed some imaginary aspects to the story, but its main theme of Jesus Christ's transcendent love for each of us shines through. Don't save this one for Easter - it's a story to be loved all year through!
