How does a parent explain Easter to a youngster? By introducing them to an angel and a dove. These two characters, coupled with charming watercolors, help author Sophie Piper and illustrator Kristina Stephenson achieve their goal of sharing the significance of this holiday to pre-school and kindergarten-aged children. In The Angel and The Dove: A Story For Easter ($12.99, Lion Children’s, an imprint of Lion UK, distributed by Trafalgar Square Publishing from Independent Publishers Group) little ones learn about life, rebirth and the return of Jesus on a miraculous spring day.
Through beautiful imagery of butterflies, flowers, new baby chicks and changing weather, along with sensitive text, parents can show their children that with every ending comes a new beginning and the very first Easter.
