Book Review: My Very First Easter Story Sticker Book

My Very First Easter Story Sticker Book written by Lois Rock and illustrated by Alex Ayliffe is a cute and fun book for young children.  This bright, interactive book has the Easter story with toddler type activities running along the bottom of each page.  Your toddler/preschooler is sure to have fun putting the stickers in place as you read the story and ask the questions.  I love how it makes the story a hands-on experience for your child.

HOWEVER, I have some serious problems with this book’s presentation of the Easter story.  There is no mention of sins and our need of a Savior – the whole point of the death and resurrection of Christ.  Now we remedied this by just filling in the details when we read the story to our son, but we were disappointed that the book just glossed over these important truths. 

We wanted to like this book, but we just can’t encourage others to spend their money on a book that misses the point.  Publishers will continue to produce this kind of stuff so long as people keep buying it.  So it is for that reason that I will be giving this such a poor review.

2 out of 5 stars

We received a free copy of this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for a fair and honest review.
