About the Book

Two sparrows, Chip and Chirp, roost for the night in an empty tomb. Suddenly in the middle of the night the body of Jesus is brought in and a large stone is rolled over the tomb’s opening. The two birds are trapped. But what an imprisonment it becomes! What the two sparrows witness changes their lives. Perhaps you too will be changed by what these tiny sparrows experience.

This book along with its companion book, “Nature’s Christmas Story” are a good holiday read for children. But more importantly they provide parents and grandparents ‘teachable moments’ to remind their families about the importance of having a relationship with Jesus Christ.

About the Author

The author has spent forty years teaching young people. As a biology teacher it is not surprising that he would choose two sparrows to remind us what happened in Joseph of Arimathea’s tomb on that first Easter. He and his wife Kathie live in western Minnesota on a small acreage with a large garden.
