Anyone else obsessed with the Tales That Tell The Truth series? We love this series over here so imagine my excitement when I learned they released a board book!
I basically leaped at the opportunity to review The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross Board Book, and I am so glad I did.
This abridged version of the The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross by Carl Laferton is perfect for little book destroyers. All of the beauty of the original, printed on sturdy board material, this book makes it easy to share the gospel with our littles right from the beginning.
What I Loved
I love that this book may be simple, but it holds all the beauty and truth of the gospel. With vibrant illustrations, and short, easy-to-understand text, littles will be enthralled with the story of how Jesus came to rescue the world from our sin.
I also love how it takes the theological symbolism of the garden of eden, the curtain to the Holy of Holies, and the Cross easily accessible to littles. There are few resources that do this well. However, this book really captures these elements and shows them to littles in a way they can understand.
What The Littles Loved
Well, the pictures, of course! They are just gorgeous. With a variety of colorfully imagery the illustrations really capture the imagination.
I also have a little one that has a hard time sitting through longer books. To be honest, my 3 year-old is yet to sit through the original version of The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross. But this shorter version was a breeze. And the best part is she has asked to read it again, and again! And isn’t that what we want in a faith-based book? A story they want to read again, and again because they know it’s for them.
This book would make the perfect addition to a little one’s Easter Basket, or a lovely gift for and infant baptism or dedication.
