Reviews - What do customers think about Best Thing About Easter?
I love reading this book to my kids! Mar 7, 2003
This book helps recount my favorite things about Easter growing up, but concludes with what I have come to realize is truly the BEST thing about Easter. Each page of the story builds in excitement as it describes the FUN things we should like about Easter (dyeing and hunting for eggs, candy, animals, springtime, dressing up, and going to church on Easter Sunday) but, repeatedly indicates that these things aren't the BEST thing about Easter. "The very BEST THING about Easter is... Jesus... God's own Son!" The story of God's planned death and resurrection of Jesus are described simply and summarized nicely: Because Jesus loves us. I highly recommend this book for teaching the "true meaning" of Easter to children, whether it be your own family, or a group of children at church, Bible classes or an Easter egg hunt. The pictures are sweet, and the way handwritten words are interspersed throughout the story help build the excitement and fun. It is written from the perspective of a little girl telling the story.
Couldn't be better! Mar 23, 2000
What a terrific story! This book truly encompasses all the "fun" Easter traditions of egg hunts and baskets of chocolatey treats, etc., while finishing with an enthusiastic and upbeat description of the true meaning of the season - Jesus and His love for us! It would have been *perfect* if the darling illustrations had included a boy more prominently...even so, my 2 boys loved it!
This book is a blessing! Mar 13, 1999
I was introduced to this book last week and I am very glad I was. It is a wonderful book that is all about Easter. Easter eggs, Easter candy, Easter animals, Easter clothes, Easter Sunday at church,Easter everything. It says that all these things are fun and OK, But the best thing about Easter is JESUS. We have Easter because of Jesus. Jesus died for our sins, But He did not stay dead. He rose on the first Easter. He did this because He loves you and me. What a wonderful message for kids (and adults). This would be a great book to read anytime of the year. Not just at Easter.
