Review: Simon and The Easter Miracle

Hardcover 32 pages $14.99
The gospels tell of Simon of Cyrene--"a man coming in from the country"--who was ordered to carry Jesus' cross. Over the centuries, his story has been woven into a Polish folktale. In the tradition of The Three Trees this folk tale gives a fresh perspective on the Easter story.
When Simon the farmer brings his wares to market, little does he expect how he will be involved in the events of that very special day, nor how his items--bread, eggs, and wine--will become important symbols of Jesus' passion and resurrection, remembered throughout the ages.

Simon and the Easter Miracle is a hardcover 32 page book with glossy pages.  We really enjoyed the illustrations in Simon and the Easter Miracle.  Our favorite was the page with the doves circling overhead.  The story is at a perfect length for preschool children.  The children did not really understand the message of the story, or even who the prisoner was until I explained that it was Jesus.  When we arrived at the last page, I was really surprised that that was the end, I expected something to tie it together a little better.

I received a complimentary copy of Simon and the Easter Miracle for the purpose of writing a fair and honest review.  I received no other compensation.
