Best Easter Book Ever! May 17, 2008
My mother-in-law gave "What is Easter?" to my daughter two years ago. I held my breath when I read it the first time. Would this book attack my faith in Jesus? I wasn't sure.
I was happily surprised. Michelle Medlock Adams explains what Easter's all about in kid-friendly terms. It's a fun, gentle book that shows it's okay to eat chocolate bunnies on Easter and buy a new outfit, but that's not the point of Easter. Jesus is the point. It's now my favorite children's Easter book. I've even brought it with me to doctor's offices and read it aloud to my kids.
Too Religious, Also Written for Girls Mar 29, 2008
I bought this for my two-year-olds for Easter, and it's way too religious. It describes Jesus' death and ressurrection in bizarre, hard-to-understand terms. "He had to die upon a tree." "He wants to live inside of you and fill you with his love." This is not the kind of descriptions toddlers can understand. The rest of the book is poorly written, and is from a little girl's point of view, having her describe her Easter hats. If you're looking for a nice Easter book, I wouldn't recommend buying this one.
Excelent explanation of traditions and truth Sep 26, 2007
This is a cute book that explains in a kid friendly way that it's okay to believe in the Easter bunny and to like other things about Easter, but that the real reason for Easter is "all about God's Son".
Great Books for Young Children Sep 18, 2007
We have all of the holiday books in this series and we love them. The illustrations are so cute and the stories are perfect for young children learning about holidays and the Christian faith.
Favorite Easter Book! Mar 2, 2007
This is my two-year-old's favorite Easter book. He enjoys the rhymes and pictures. I like it because our family celebrates all the Easter traditions (egg hunts, the Easter bunny, etc), but I want my children to know that the true meaning of Easter is our Lord's resurrection!
