Easter is a time when Christians remember how Jesus, the son of God, sacrificed his life for them. Though it is a sad time in some ways, it is also a happy time. It is a time of rebirth and of new beginnings. It is a time when baby animals are born and when flowers bloom. Many people celebrate Easter by going to church and by having a big meal with their families.

For children Easter is a time to decorate Easter eggs, to have Easter eggs hunts, to play games outdoors, and to wonder what the Easter Bunny might bring them.

This excellent title in the My first look at holidays series will help young children understand what Easter is all about. Full of colorful annotated photographs and with an Easter activity at the back of the book, this title is sure to excite little children and give them lots of holiday ideas.
