Both of his first two books, The true night before Christmas (ISBN-10: 0615226892), and The True Night before Easter, are illustrated by Penland's granddaughter, Savannah Adams. These books follow the same meter and rhyme as Twas the night before Christmas by Clement Moore'Twas the Night Before Christmas. However, instead of a poem about Santa and his reindeer, it is a poem about the real reason for celebrating Christmas and Easter: the birth of Jesus Christ, and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The drawings capture the essence of the gospel message, illustrating the large print text. Younger children will enjoy these books. However, fourth and fifth graders will especially delight in knowing that these books were illustrated by Savannah when she was nine years old.This is a good book to read after reading Clements classic and to use in a compare/contrast lesson.

Beautiful Story about the real meaning of Easter. Purchased for grandchild!

Great writing about the Easter story.

I have purchased 4 books for family and church. It is a lovely story of our true Easter that will touch your heart as an adult as well as children. Definitely a keepsake.
