My review: This book is truly beautiful and perfect for this Easter season. The first thing I noticed when I picked it up was the lovely cover. I'm not sure what it's made of but it feels sturdy as though it would last a lifetime of children looking through it's beautiful pages. I also loved the picture of Jesus on the front. So pretty! I loved the way that the scripture passages went perfectly with the beautiful paintings in this book. I loved the way that I was able to think of the Savior and feel his Spirit as I read this book. This is a perfect book to keep on your coffee table at this time of year.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
