I’m always looking for fresh resources to help my children engage in the story of scripture and this devotional hits all the right notes. With simple language, engaging questions, clear truths, and a realistic timeframe (this is key!), this is a truly wonderful resource for even the busiest parents to help their children understand the power of the resurrection and God’s perfect plan.

This is a fantastic plan for families with young children for making the most of the full fortnight before the highest feast in the Christian calendar. I enjoyed previewing these as a daddy, and can’t wait to make this next Holy Week special for our kids—and the week before! For years, I’ve found walking with Jesus from Palm Sunday to Easter to be a spiritually significant annual habit—but it just always seems to go by too quickly. So why not make it two weeks and involve the kids?

It’s hard for me to believe, but one of my favorite children’s books just got better. The Garden, The Curtain, and The Cross is both an outstanding introduction to the Christian faith and a soul-stirring encouragement to those who already believe. This devotional guide anticipates thoughtful questions, equips you to discover the answers, and presents the subject manner in a worship-full tone.

“Engaging Bible Truth”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross Story Plus Easter Calendar and 4 Coloring Books Bundle')

Love this book for its accurate scripture teaching. Grandkids love it for the artistry and story telling! It’s a win win!


“Excellent Books”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross Story Plus Easter Calendar and 4 Coloring Books Bundle')

I bought all 14 of The Tales That are True for my great grand children. They love them so much. Their parents read one book every night. Their bed time is twice as long now because they ask so many questions about the stories.


“Terrific collect, of course we want more!”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross Story Plus Easter Calendar and 4 Coloring Books Bundle')

This series of books is scriptural accurate & visually stunning! It is grabbing the attention of more than the 3-5 age group and is a favorite when children are selecting their own books to read and re-read. I gave a dozen out as Christmas gifts….. the notes and calls I received for more books was heartfelt and surprising! Huge THANKS to Alistair Begg’s Ministry: “Truth for Life” and to the Good Book Co. for bringing these fantastic books to print!!


“Excellent book, very engaging for children. Also purchased the the accompanying activity book.”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross Story Plus Easter Calendar and 4 Coloring Books Bundle')

I would recommend this book to parents and grandparents for excellent reading. The activity book was also a plus to accompany the book.



(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross Story Plus Easter Calendar and 4 Coloring Books Bundle')

Excellent quality, great colour and and solid teaching.


“The Gospel in All Scripture”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross Story Plus Easter Calendar and 4 Coloring Books Bundle')

We absolutely love the Truth that Tells the Truth series, but this book is our favorite. We go back to it time and time again. It gives my kids a complete view of scripture as being one big story, rather than a bunch of unrelated individual stories. I love that through this book, my kids can grasp the Gospel and see that it has always been God's plan for salvation.


“A great idea, but we struggled with ut”

We have the book and love it, so I got the calendar to do with my kids, particularly the 6 year old, who are used to doing family Bible times. They enjoyed it and loved the calendar but it was a struggle - I had to rephrase a lot of things that were unnecessarily complicated - why pray that God will "enable" us to understand, when the word "help" does the job just as well? I had to rephrase a lot of jargon and christianese, and unpick a lot of compound sentences to make it work.
Given the age that the original book is aimed at, this seemed a shame and a missed step.


“A fun family resource that helps kids think more about how Easter fits into Gods plan”

Our family of four (age 7 down to age 3) enjoyed this Easter countdown calendar. The younger ones opening the doors and engaging with the brilliant art work (taken from the book) and listening in as the older ones answered well thought out questions and prayers from the resource. The refrain (mentioned on another review) is a real strength and has stayed with them.

In places it is a little ‘wordy’ and the pictures behind the doors are on the small side; though we will be using again and even led the eldest to want to read the book to his skeptical Granny!


“Fabulous 2-week devotional for kids!”

This is a really excellent resource! We'd previously had the Book, but the devotional was great for the fortnight before Easter, in place of our usual bedtime Bible reading with our 4 year old daughter. But there's also lots of extension ideas and questions for older children. GIve it a go - you won't regret it!


“A brilliant Easter resource”

We loved using this over breakfast as a family and it kept our young and lively boys (4 and 3 years old) really engaged. They loved opening the flaps each day and reciting the lines from the book and devotional ("Because of our sin...we can't come in. Because Jesus died, we can come inside."). A great way to help build anticipation and excitement around the Easter story.
