This collection will enable churches to create an Easter program whether they are blessed with a large number of children or only a few. Blessed is the One is a short drama in three scenes which takes us from Palm Sunday through the resurrection. The Ride to Jerusalem is a very simple drama for Palm Sunday, suitable for enacting during a worship service.

That They May Be One helps us see that even as he struggled with his approaching death, Jesus continued to pray for us. Told in poetry with a refrain that can be said by any number of children, Cock-A-Doodle-Do, tells the story of Peter's denial and ends with the observation that Peter became on of Jesus' strongest followers.

I Have Seen the Lord is based on John 20:1-19 and is a very brief story of Mary's encounter with the living Lord. Several poems about Lent, Holy Week, and Easter round out the collection. Also included are three interactive teaching stories that can be used with children or the whole congregation during Holy Week.
