MY VERY FIRST EASTER STORY STICKER BOOK by Lois Rock and Illustrated by Alex Ayliffe


Here is a story and activity book containing a complete retelling of the Easter story presented in a simple manner for young children to grasp. The stickers are used first to complete the illustrations in the main story. Then there are extra activities on each page alongside the story--counting, naming, identifying--with stickers for each. All of the stickers are found in the center of the book where they are grouped and numbered according to activity to make it easy for young children to find the right sticker.


Lois Rock is the Commissioning Editor for Lion Children’s Books, as well as a highly respected and trusted author in her own right, acclaimed in many different countries for her books of prayers, Bible stories, and non-fiction books about the Christian faith.

Lois lives in Oxfordshire, is married and has 3 children, all of whom are now grown up. She enjoys cycling and walking and has helped to lead church children’s groups for many years, an experience that she draws on when writing books for children.  


This is a wonderful sticker book about the Easter Story. Alex Ayliffe uses bright colors and simple graphics that catch a child's eye. Lois's story line is a simple retelling of the Easter Story, about Jesus and His death and resurrection. A child will have no trouble staying attentive to the story. 

A child will also enjoy placing the colorful stickers in their respective places. There are easy activities besides the stickers that include simple math questions,identifying objects and more.

This sticker book will give any child a basic understanding of Jesus' death and resurrection as well as countless hours of joy as they reread the Easter Story.

Kregel Publications provided me with a review copy of this book for the purpose of writing this review.
