I used this as part of my Parent and Toddler group Good Friday session, giving it out to them all so that they could follow while I read it. Some of the vocabulary used is not obvious for little children, but the (mainly non-Christian) parents seemed positive. The content - focussing on the earthquake at the crucifixion - is an unusual tack, but effective.
This little book is beautifully illustrated. I could imagine reading this with young children, learning the repeated refrain, ‘I guess we shouldn’t be surprised, God’s Son Died.’ It is simple, effective and powerful. I enjoyed reading it through several times and have passed it onto our youth pastor to use with ‘The Field’ our preschool class, and perhaps even our Baby and Toddler Group at Easter.
