The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross

The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross is a new book for toddlers that explains the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The one I’m reviewing today is a “board book” – remember those when you were a kid? They don’t have the cover that a hardback does, and the pages are thick… like a board! The pages of this one shine. This book is written by Carl Laferton with illustrations by Catalina Echeverri.

This books starts with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and how the fall of mankind occurred. I noticed that the author pointed out that “the people” decided not to do what God wanted, and that they were both at fault. This important detail/truth was not lost on me, and I thought it was great to explain it to kids this way.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

The story goes on to show kids the temple, the cross, and reconciliation with God… all in kid-friendly terms. The illustrations are great and they really compliment the story. I think this is a great book that kids will enjoy over and over again. Highly recommended!
