The author explains what baptism is by using text like this: “For you he triumphed over death and rose in newness of life.”
Then, she explains what that means by saying: “But death was not the end. Jesus came back to life. Now we can live each day with God’s power. When we die, we can live with God forever.”
The illustrations by Linda Saport are colorful and go along with the text, but the people look odd
What I Like: I like the text because it is annotated. I haven’t seen many annotated texts for children, but I like the idea.
What I Dislike: However, I don’t like the illustrations. The people are cartoon-like (which is okay), but they look odd, even for cartoon characters with their heads positioned at odd angles.
Overall Rating: Good.
Age Appeal: 4-7
