Little ones will learn the story leading up to the death and resurrection of Jesus in Ready, Set. Find Easter. There are no Easter bunnies, pastel decorations, sweets, or pretty painted eggs within these pages. However, there are a lot of important things to seek, find, and discover along the way that will help children visualize this very important time.
Throughout the pages of this Easter Holiday themed board book young children will be challenged in finding the 48 objects hidden on the pages while learning the reason why we celebrate this time of the year. The Easter story is simplified into an accurate retelling with scripture references that you can look up and read aside from this book.
Ready, Set, Find Easter is an adorable book for children. Though intended for the younger crowd, my 8 and 5-year-old reached for this book to see who could find all the hidden objects the fastest. My ten-month-old daughter is just getting into books and she appeared to really like listening to me read and turn the brightly colored pages.
The book is hardcover and it features circular tabs that one can quickly reach to go to right away. The tab feature/design element certainly caught the eye of my kids. I particularly like the tabs because if they stop searching on a page in the book, for the time being, they will remember where they left off and turn to the next tab when they pick the book up again.
Each of the pages features different parts of the Easter story. There’s a scripture reference followed by a re-telling. Beneath the retelling and scripture are is the “Can You Find” section. In this section, there are things like ladders, mouse, candle, camel, and so forth to find on the right-hand page.
This book is a wonderful way to be reminded of God’s great love for us in sacrificing his son in a fun and interactive way.
This book is perfect for at home, on the go, during church ( like an Easter service and a child has to sit in the main service), or at a family members house to enjoy during the Holiday. I certainly recommend it!
