“Our God is a loving God and He will not fail you” is what Marlene’s wants her readers to realize as they begin their daily walk with God down the path of the rest of their lives.

Synopsis

Grandma tell Me the Easter Story

Children need to hear and be taught the truths of God’s Word at early and tender ages because of all the ungodly things they are being surrounded by in today’s society; from the school system as well as peer pressure. They need to learn of our God who loves them and has provided a way for them to go to heaven.

 

Marlene L. Burling has written ” Gandma, Tell me the Easter Story, which is based solely on the scriptural accounts found in the Bible. A child’s name is to be inserted in the blanks found throughout the story to help them see it’s truly a story especially for them. Scripture references are found at the turn of each page to verify what’s been written.

 

The illustrations found in the book are in black and white, which also provided to  the child the opportunity to color the characters and scenes; all of which will help the child to learn and remember what the Easter story is truly about
