Reviews - What do customers think about Easter Bunny, Are You For Real??
horrified Apr 18, 2006
We received this book for our children for Easter and I was simply HORRIFIED that the first page says that bunnies are "bad". My two year old is now running around, pointing at rabbits and saying bad. I would never read this book again due to this negative language. I grew up understanding the true meaning of Easter without learning that the Easter bunny was bad.
It helped me Dec 4, 2002
This book has been around for a while. I grew up with a copy back in the late 70s and I have great memories of it. I grew up in a family that didn't go for the Santa Claus and Easter Bunny myths, and although my parents tried to teach a spirit of kindness and understanding, I had a tendancy to look down my nose at the poor gullible saps who fell for the myths. By providing a historical context for the secular Easter traditioins, this book helped temper my attitude and help me be more respectful of the Bunny Believers around me. It also reinforced my undertanding of the true focus of the holiday and it was nice as a kid to have a pretty picture book that said the same things that my parents did. I highly recommend it and plan on getting a copy of this and the Santa Claus equivalent for my children.
Great Book Apr 5, 2000
This book does a great job explaining how "The Easter Bunny has nothing to do with the real Easter." It gives a simple explanation of Jesus death and how he rose from the grave. It also explains how celebrating Spring (New baby animals , flowers and trees blooming)"is God's picture of Jesus rising from the dead as all of Nature comes to life again" It explains how Eggs and Coloring them became part of the easter tradition and says that spring time and the real Easter got mixed up.
In the book a child ask if it is Ok to celebrate Spring by Hiding eggs The answer is Sure , if we also remember that on the real Easter Jesus rose from the dead. It mentions going to Church to celebrate Easter.The book puts the focus back on Jesus where it should be, and not on the Easter Bunny. I love this book!!!
Easter Bunny Are You for Real? Apr 3, 2000
This is a great book to read with your children to help them see beyond (but yet still enjoy) the Easter Bunny and Easter eggs, and understand the true meaning of Easter in the Christian faith.
Easter Bunny: Are You for Real Apr 3, 2000
This book is an excellent choice for any three (3) to eight (8) year old. It is an especially appropriate choice for a christian family that would like to teach its children about their religious reasons for celebrating Easter. I like the tie-in to the secular message since that is what our children see all around them. The illustrations are very nice and are sure to please your young child. I believe that this is a wonderful addition to our library. It makes the perfect Easter basket gift. My three (3) year-old is the lucky recipient this Easter. I have four (4) children and several hundred childrens titles in our home. I think the whole family will enjoy this book as a read-aloud book.
