For me, the book is a good tie back to "The Littlest Angel", with the treasure box an integral part of both stories. Although the children for whom I purchased this book are still a little young for the story presented, I think this is an excellent book for children age 7 and older who can understand the events of Passion Week and Easter presented in this book. I'll hold on to it until the "grands" are old enough, and use this as their annual Easter book.
My daughter's 2nd grade Sunday school class read this on Palm Sunday & they filled their own little boxes with reminders. It was a hit!
