Book Review: The Legend of The Easter Egg

10 Feb

735452One April morning when the air was soft and sweet, a boy and his sister went outside to gather eggs. “Easter’s coming,” the sister said. “Let’s pretend we’re hunting Easter eggs.” “What are Easter eggs?” the boy asked. When Thomas’s older sister Lucy falls ill, Thomas goes to live with the Sonnemans in their candy shop. He gets to eat peppermint sticks, fill candy jars, and weigh chocolate on the tippy scales, but he misses Lucy. When Easter comes, Mrs. Sonneman gives Thomas his first chocolate egg and Thomas learns the true meaning behind Easter eggs, the empty tomb, and the hope found in Jesus. This classic story of faith, love, and wonder is sure to be a treasured reminder of the miracle of Easter.

Lori Walburg is a freelance editor, a writer for the NIrV Kid’s Devotional Bible, and the author of The Legend of the Easter Egg. She lives with her family in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Richard Cowdrey’s favorite things to draw and paint are the things that reflect the awesomeness of God and His creation. From vast landscapes to the littlest bug on a leaf, Richard marvels at the beauty in the details. Richard’s bestselling children’s books include Bad Dog, Marley and A Very Marley Christmas.

My Impressions:

The Legend of The Easter Egg is a beautifully illustrated storybook suitable for children ages 4-7. A simple story, it presents faith in Jesus in easily understood terms. This book is perfect for sharing the truths of Jesus’ death and resurrection to small children.  At the end of the book, the author has included traditions and symbols common for Lent and Easter. A good addition to your Easter reading or great as a gift for the special child in your life.
