Based on a selection of verses from the King James Bible, Easter tells the story of Christ’s passion—Mary anointing Jesus’ feet, the crowd’s adulation; Jesus washing his disciples’ feet; Judas’s betrayal; Peter’s denial; Jesus’ arrest, trial, and crucifixion. And his resurrection on the third day.
Stunning illustrations—silhouettes of people against both muted and vivid backgrounds, as well as various vines, flowers, and animals—worshipfully capture the love, pain, and wonder of Christ’s sacrifice for humanity.
First published in 1989 and recently reprinted,Easter is an artistic treasure, a picture book worth sharing with a whole new generation of children. (Knopf)
