How do you talk with your kids about Easter? What stories do you tell to make the East story easy to understand for littler ears? We love to tell the truth about Easter, and a good book is always helpful. I was so excited to read The Legend of the Easter Robin and now love the early spring bird even more! Little Miss was just as excited to see a new book arrive in the mail. But every child has fallen for this book since it has been in the house!
About the book:
In the center of the nest lay one perfect egg, the color of a spring sky. The father robin sat on a branch nearby, guarding his family. Tressa spotted raccoon tracks below and a blue jay eyeing the nest. "Gran, how are we going to keep the egg safe?" "We'll have to leave that one to the Creator," Gran said. Robins have built a nest on the window ledge at Grandmother's house! Tressa is thrilled―and concerned. What will happen to the sky-blue egg laid by the mother robin? As more eggs appear, Tressa witnesses the daily drama of the robins' nest and learns how God cares for all creatures. Besides watching the birds, there are Easter eggs to color. And there is a very special story to hear―a tale of long ago about one small bird with a very big heart. How did the robin get its red breast? Tressa is about to find out as Gran tells her the story of the Easter robin. Brought to life with colorful, tender illustrations, The Legend of the Easter Robin will captivate and teach your child about compassion and faith.
This beautiful 32-page hardcover book is geared towards ages 4-8 years, but we have all enjoyed this book in the house from 1 to 38. The pictures are gorgeous. They are to the point, without being too graphic when you see Jesus, and vibrantly fully of color when talking about the robin family. When it was not being read, someone had this book in their hands to look at the pictures!
