Mary Joslin is a Good Books author.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3 This attractive retelling of the Easter story mirrors this team's On That Christmas Night (Good Bks, 2005). In straightforward prose, the author relates the events leading up to the crucifixion and resurrection, beginning with Jesus's triumphant arrival into Jerusalem. Each spread is devoted to a key scene. Joslin incorporates dialogue and descriptive imagery about the setting, such as the jingling coins in the temple and the hundred flickering lamps that illuminate the faces of Jesus's accusers, to bring the story to life. Interesting details about the culture of the time also enrich the writing. The inspirational narrative highlights Jesus's actions and his lessons of love and forgiveness, touching only briefly on the role of his disciples. The graceful illustrations, which are framed by decorative borders, reflect the emotions elicited by each scene through the expressive faces of the biblical figures and the color palette. One slight drawback, however, is the placement of the text within the framed illustrations, because the typeface does not stand out against some of the darker shades. Overall, though, this pleasing celebration of the New Testament story is a fine addition to most collections. Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA
