Really Woolly Easter Blessings by Bonnie Rickner Jensen–Book Review

 

Spring is a time where things come back to life, and new life is just beginning. This rhyming devotional for children shows the Really Woolly characters learning not only about spring, but about the Easter story. Your kids will love it!

 

I love getting new devotionals for my kids. I love to teach my kids about God and His love for us. These rhyming devotionals are especially nice for smaller children. The illustrations in this book were beautiful and perfectly suited for your kids. Each devotional starts with a Bible verse, then is written in a cute rhyming fashion. At the end is a prayer starter for you and your kids as you pray together. I am going to give mine to my kids on Easter, but I know they’re going to love it! Be sure to grab your copy today (available February 21)!

One Spring Lamb by Anne Virtue Kennedy–Book Review

This adorable board book counts from 1 to 10 through the spring season. From lambs, to flowers, to the reminder of God’s love for us.

I think this book is perfect for small children. It tells all about spring and teaches counting at the same time. On top of a wonderful little rhyming story about spring, it is beautifully illustrated! I love it and can’t wait to give it to my youngest for Easter!

The Legend of the Easter Robin by Dandi Mackall–Book Review

_240_360_Book.1809.coverWhen Tressa discovers a robin building her nest outside one of her grandmother’s windows, she becomes very enthralled with it. She watches as the robin builds a nest and eventually lays some eggs in the nest, but then a frost comes. Tressa worries about the family of robins and whether or not the eggs will make it through the cold, as well as whether other animals will get to the eggs. Tressa’s grandmother tells her the story of the legend of the robin and how it got it’s red breast as they prepare for Easter.

This was a wonderful story that reminds us of the true meaning of Easter through the story of the robin. It uses the symbolism of the red breast as a visual reminder that we can use every time we see a robin. I had never heard this story and I loved it! I plan to give this to my girls as an Easter present, but I know they will love it was well. It was beautifully illustrated by Richard Cowdrey.

The First Easter Ever by Dennis Jones–Book Review

_225_350_Book.1487.coverThe most important story in the Bible is beautifully told in this children’s book. It starts out by telling a little about Jesus’ earthly ministry, and then leads up to the prayer in Gethsemane and finally His death, burial, resurrection and ends with His ascension. Children will love this book.

This book is beautifully illustrated and tells the Easter story in the perfect way for children to understand it. I love that it doesn’t end with Jesus’ resurrection, but goes on to explain how Jesus went to heaven and will come back again in the same manner. For just a few dollars, this is the perfect addition for your child’s Easter basket!

The Beginner’s Bible Come Celebrate Easter Sticker and Activity book by Kelly Pulley–Book Review

_240_360_Book_1486_coverThis Easter Activity book is beautifully illustrated and tells the story of Easter with fun activities and stickers for children. Children are engaged in the story through the various activities, and therefore I believe that they’ll be able to understand more clearly the most important story in the Bible.

I loved the way this activity book tells the Easter story. It has colorful illustrations with a variety of activities for children to interact with. It also has a few questions to ask the children after you’ve read the part of the story on that page. In the activities the children are asked to color or fill in pictures of each part of the story with stickers. Sometimes they have to trace letters or solve puzzles. I plan on giving this to my daughter for Easter, and she will love it. She’s three but I believe she will be able to do most of the activities. Some of the activities may be a little above her head, but I think with my help she’ll be fine with them. For just a few dollars I believe it’s perfect for Easter baskets. After all, this is the true meaning of Easter.
