In the Garden by Caralyn Buehner, Illustrated by Brandon Dorman. Published by Deseret Book.

I received two Easter books for children today and I thought I'd better hurry and get them reviewed for those of you that are wanting something to help teach your children what Easter is all about.

These two books are quite different, so I hope these reviews will help you decide which one would be best for you. Maybe you will decide you want both! "In the Garden" is a short, condensed version of the Easter story. Many key elements are left out of the story, but if you are looking for a very basic version to help your children understand a very complicated topic, this would be a good choice. The illustrations are beautiful and are truly what makes this book special.
