The Easter Story

Once, a long time ago, a little donkey was brought to Jesus.’ The story of Easter is told here through the eyes of the donkey that carried Jesus into the city of Jerusalem. He watches the Last Supper, he sees Jesus brought before Pontius Pilate, he is there when Jesus is crucified, and he witnesses the joy of the resurrection. Every year, as these events are remembered, this beautiful retelling from Brian Wildsmith is a lovely book to share with children. Brian Wildsmith was one of the Twentieth century’s most acclaimed picture-book writers and artists.

Our Review Panel says...

This is the Christian story of Easter as told through the eyes of the donkey that carried Jesus into Jerusalem and watched the events of the Easter story unfold. The text is accompanied by beautiful illustrations and would be suitable to use with the whole primary age range as they explore the meaning behind the Christian festival.
