Easter is just around the corner. In my household we try not to focus on the Easter Bunny part, but the true reason why we celebrate Easter. Sometimes it’s hard for little ones to understand it. That’s why I love Zondervan. They have a wide variety of children’s religious books. I found three that I really loved. I felt they were just what we needed to help explain Easter to them.
About “The Easter Story For Children”:
“A retelling of the Easter story by Max Lucado with Randy Frazee and Karen Hill, and beautifully illustrated by Fausto, The Easter Story for Children is sure to become a family reading tradition.”
About “He Is Risen” & “Jesus Enters Jerusalem” :
“Jesus Enters Jerusalem and He Is Risen is a flip book that tells two beloved stories featuring art from the popular The Beginner’s Bible with sticker sheets for added fun.”
About “Lily’s Easter Party” :
“A neighborhood Easter Egg hunt sets the stage for a read through the Gospel story of each symbol in the Resurrection Eggs, a FamilyLife product that helps teach the most amazing story in our faith history.”
My daughter loved Lily’s Easter Party! It really brought a new meaning to her for Easter egg hunts. They were no longer about the candy, but about Jesus’s life and death. I thought it was a perfect idea. It was fun, educational, and you could even turn it into a game! In my opinion it is the perfect Sunday School activity!! He Is Risen & Jesus Enters Jerusalem was my son’s favorite books. He really loved the “magic” behind it being two books in one. He kept flipping it over and over wanting us to read each one to him. He especially loved the stickers that came with it! Let’s be honest…what kid doesn’t love stickers? I loved how it was able to capture the true meaning of Easter and put it into a format that my Kindergartner was able to understand. It captures the true sadness and heartache but also really focuses on the resurrection and joy that comes with it. I felt that The Easter Story For Children was a perfect story for the whole family. It recalls the whole story of Easter. It starts with the Passover meal and then ends with Jesus telling his disciples about the Holy Spirit coming. I think this would make for the perfect family tradition. I know we will be reading it every Easter from now on. My overall opinion of all three books is very high; I think they are just great! They have bright and colorful illustrations that make them fun for children to follow. The stories are easy for them to understand. They are perfect learning tools for little ones to learn about Easter.
