God Gave Us Easter - Children's Fiction

God Gave Us Easter
by Lisa Tawn Bergren and Laura J. Bryant

Little Cub and her father are off to discover how God made Easter and what it really means.  Little Cub’s father talks Little Cub about the true meaning of Easter, what those pretty Easter eggs symbolize, and how Jesus fits into the whole day.  Little Cub finds out that God planned Easter long before Jesus was ever born.  In the end, Little Cub understands that Easter is about God living inside our hearts.

This is my second “God Gave Us…..” book, and I’m officially hooked!  This book was well written and great for explaining “real” Easter in light of the commercialism the world assigns the holiday.  I’m so glad the authors inserted a small blurb about the Easter Bunny not being the important part of Easter.  There were many easy verbal illustrations throughout the book explaining things like Easter eggs, what the “Root of Jesse” means, and what it means to talk to and hear from God.  I loved using this book to talk about Easter with my 6 year old.  Overall, I give this sweet kids book an A: great for parents wanting to discuss the REAL meaning of Easter.  HE IS RISEN!

I received a free print copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
