I was provided a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my review.
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
The hope of Easter comes to life in Jesus Is Alive. Through colorful pictures of a child’s day with family and friends, little hearts learn about the time leading to Jesus’s death and resurrection. Most importantly, they learn that in Jesus all things are new!
Cuddle and Sing is the bestselling board book series that teaches the love of Jesus to children ages zero to three. This is the first seasonal book to be released in the series and continues the delightful tone that makes the first three books so popular.
Sweet Illustrations and Catchy Rhymes
Of course I am partial to a book that tells of the hope of Jesus being alive, and Debby Anderson tells it well in the style of rhyme and with adorable illustrations. While explaining to the listener in this 'read aloud' many of the ways that we know that Jesus is alive, there are corresponding reminders of the story of Easter, which is lovely, although nothing that I think that will resinate with the target audience.
Sadly, Evelyn listened, but was only too happy to move along to another book, and never once pointed at anything, or tried to discuss anything. The book is published in board book format, and is therefore quite short and suitable for listeners eighteen months and younger, maybe as an Easter gift in lieu of chocolate. I don't believe that readers even a pinch older will take a significant interest in the book, at least not enough to want to revisit it.
