An Easter Prayer is an adorable touch-and-feel children’s book written by Amy Parker and illustrated by Alison Edgson. The words of the book focus on giving thanks to Jesus. It is a board book, and each of the twelve pages shows a chick and bunny in a cute scene. The rhymes are well-written, the drawings are endearing, and the book as a whole is wonderful.
Each page has a different area that you can touch and feel; on one page, for example, you can feel the fluffy chick (which feels a little bit like a soft rug), and on another, you can feel the smooth, leather-like “water.” My favorite touch-and-feel object was the soft purple flower. This would be a great book to put in a young child’s Easter basket. I plan on buying a few additional copies of An Easter Prayer.
