Dear Parents and Teachers

Easter gives us a wonderful chance to teach children about the Savior. This month has a message and activity about Christ (page 2), instructions for making Easter kites (page 26), an Easter countdown (page 24), and a story about a girl testifying of the Resurrection after her friend dies (page 46). You can also visit to watch a beautiful video about the characteristics of Christ.

He lives!
