The Illustrations: I loved the character’s faces in this book. I just thought they were so filled with expression at each moment in the story. I enjoyed the feeling of the artwork gave to the timeframe as well. It felt like we were in biblical times.
The Story: The Forgotten Rabbit Tale is a story that follows a little boy during the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It also, however, weaves the story of how the Easter bunny and color eggs factor into the tale. It’s a beautiful way to connect the Easter holiday with the celebratory events of present day. I was so drawn into this story, and while it is a children’s book, it was so impactful for me. Christy Garnhart has written an impressive tale that is sure to touch the hearts of readers.
Overall, The Forgotten Rabbit Tale was an amazing children’s book that is perfect for Easter. With lovely writing, a touching story, and beautiful illustrations, it was wonderful!
