Over this weekend Olivia and I read this book to Elise. Since we were reading it to Elise I asked Olivia a lot of questions about the book. So, this is Olivia’s version of the Easter story as told by her and me:
Me: (pointing to a picture of the cross with a figure on it) Who’s this?
Me: What is he doing?
Liv: He’s dying.
Me: Is he dying for you?
Liv: Yes. And Elise, and Sherman.
Me: (pointing to a picture of Mary) Who’s this?
Liv: Mary. She’s blue.
Me: Yes, Mary is usually wearing blue. (pointing to a picture of the Tomb) What’s this?
Liv: A rock.
Me: Yes this is the tomb where Jesus was buried after He died. (pointing to a picture of the empty tomb) What’s this.
Liv: (very excited) The rock is open! This is the happy part!!!!!
Me: Yes! It is so happy that Jesus rose again! He is alive!
Liv: He rose again!
