Are you a fan of the classic book called "'Twas Night Before Christmas" by Clement Moore? The style implies it applied in this book called "'Twas the Morning of Easter." It is quite enjoyable; It sees the rhyming of the poem throughout the book. My rating is four and a half stars (Moons). I am curious about how the first book called "'Twas the Evening of Christmas" is done. I would love to read that one.

It is a neat way to do the story of Jesus' resurrection; It a book that will have children interacting with it or continuing to read every year. The could become a new Easter tradition by having this book read either the night before Easter, even a few days before, on the morning of Easter.

Children and grandchildren can see a fresh and new way to see Jesus' resurrection through this book. The poem style is down wonderfully. I enjoyed reading it this way. Not too hard to understand and is enjoyable. I have not found a better way to read the resurrection of Jesus as completing and knowledge as this book.

The pictures do it the story well. Children and adults will treasure this book and want to read it year after year—it an excellent book to start a new tradition with family. Grandparents and parents can read this to their children and youngsters. Children may even understand the meaning of Easter better than before.
