The Easter Story by Brian Wildsmith

Brian Wildsmith and Oxford Children’s Books have come together to create a beautiful version of The Easter Story. The key events and emotions of this timeless story are shared from the point of view of the donkey: from their arrival in Jerusalem, through the Last Supper, standing before Pilate, the Crucifixion and Resurrection. The donkey and a host of angels watch over Jesus and reflect on all that is happening.

The colourful illustrations are captivating with shining gold on every page. There is much to see and discuss. This book includes a lot of detail and would work well with older children exploring why Easter is celebrated or important aspects of the Christian faith.

Thank you to Oxford Children’s for this lovely book!
