The story of Easter is at the heart of the Christian faith. Starting with the palm-waving procession that accompanies Jesus on his arrival at Jerusalem, this book follows the events through the last supper, the betrayal, arrest and trial, the crucifixion, burial and resurrection. The text is simple and dignified, and follows the Bible's Gospel of Matthew in giving an account of the Easter events. It is designed to appeal to children across a wide age range, thereby making it suitable for whole-school assemblies and Easter pageants.
