What an idea! Use this to walk your family through the big story of the Bible to prepare for Easter. Let's do it!

I’m always looking for fresh resources to help my children engage in the story of scripture and this devotional hits all the right notes. With simple language, engaging questions, clear truths, and a realistic timeframe (this is key!), this is a truly wonderful resource for even the busiest parents to help their children understand the power of the resurrection and God’s perfect plan.

It’s hard for me to believe, but one of my favorite children’s books just got better. The Garden, The Curtain, and The Cross is both an outstanding introduction to the Christian faith and a soul-stirring encouragement to those who already believe. This devotional guide anticipates thoughtful questions, equips you to discover the answers, and presents the subject manner in a worship-full tone.

“Beautiful and Biblical”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross Story Plus Easter Calendar and 4 Coloring Books Bundle')

This is one of my highest-recommended children's books! We bulk-ordered it and passed them out to all the kids at our church on Easter Sunday! A comprehensive Biblical look at the whole Gospel in terms children can understand and adults can enjoy.

“Great resource for Easter”

We used this in collaboration with and Easter event we held for families at our church. Families were given this outside of the event but then at the event, the story was read and a storyboard craft was created by all families attending. The partnership of both pieces allowed us to have a united Lent discipleship moment for our families!

“Love this book”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross Story Plus Easter Calendar and 4 Coloring Books Bundle')

This is a wonderful book. Our church shared this with us and we got a copy to read at home to the kids. The story is great and the images are engaging for the kids.

“Solid truth for children young & old”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross Story Plus Easter Calendar and 2 Coloring Books Bundle')

I am not easy to impress when it comes to Christian children’s books, as it is hard to find one that strikes the balance of child-level communication while still maintaining the depth and fullness of the Word of God. The Garden, The Curtain, and The Cross blew me away. Honestly, as a 30-something who has been in church her whole life, I have drawn understanding and insight for myself from the simplicity but DEPTH and big picture biblical perspective of this book. Thank you for remaining faithful to the truth of God’s Word without dumbing it down and without admixture of the world’s philosophies. This book is gold.

“great for little minds”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross Story Plus Easter Calendar and 2 Coloring Books Bundle')

This book is excellent for young children to understand the saving work of Christ

“A great idea, but we struggled with ut”

We have the book and love it, so I got the calendar to do with my kids, particularly the 6 year old, who are used to doing family Bible times. They enjoyed it and loved the calendar but it was a struggle - I had to rephrase a lot of things that were unnecessarily complicated - why pray that God will "enable" us to understand, when the word "help" does the job just as well? I had to rephrase a lot of jargon and christianese, and unpick a lot of compound sentences to make it work.
Given the age that the original book is aimed at, this seemed a shame and a missed step.

“A fun family resource that helps kids think more about how Easter fits into Gods plan”

Our family of four (age 7 down to age 3) enjoyed this Easter countdown calendar. The younger ones opening the doors and engaging with the brilliant art work (taken from the book) and listening in as the older ones answered well thought out questions and prayers from the resource. The refrain (mentioned on another review) is a real strength and has stayed with them.

In places it is a little ‘wordy’ and the pictures behind the doors are on the small side; though we will be using again and even led the eldest to want to read the book to his skeptical Granny!
