The Legend of the Easter Egg by Lori Walburg {Review}

The Legend of the Easter Egg

Newly Illustrated Edition: The Inspirational Story of a Favorite Easter Tradition Already we know that we love Richard Cowdrey’s illustrations, and he did a great job with his version of Dandi Daley Mackall’s The Legend of the Easter Robin and now an equally great job of Lori Walburg’s The Legend of the Easter Egg. This is a beautifully done glittery cover! The Legend of the Easter Robin illustrated by Richard Cowdrey includes beautiful full-page full-color illustrations that tell a historical and traditional tale for Easter time. Carrying over characters from other Lori Walburg Legends of stories, this book shows a perspective from a little boy with an ill sister with scarlet fever. In this story, the tale of resurrection is told through the curiosity of a little boy and beautiful images as he learns to pray, prays and hopes for health for his sister and for Easter to come.

Royal Easter Story (The Princess Parables) by Jeanna Young & Jacqueline Johnson {Review}

A Royal Easter Story picture book

From the popular Princess Parables series, an Easter story perfect for girls 4-8.   My 4-year-old Princess loves the Princess Parables series. She doesn’t have a favorite, but she loves to read the books featuring each sister again and again. We love the picture books and the I Can Read! early readers also. Thus, this year, we are very thrilled to add another book to this series with A Royal Easter Story that tells a tale of tradition, of those lost that can be found on Easter and of how Jesus is available for all who Ask, Seek, and Knock. Featuring teaching of Luke 11:9-13 this is a perfect princess themed story to get even the Princess child involved. Gotta love that glittery cover!   The most recent in the Princess Parables is in out Easter Book List! Check the blog for a review. #princess #easter #book A photo posted by. . .

The Legend of the Easter Robin by Dandi Daley Mackall {Review}

The Legend of the Easter Robin

This newly illustrated edition of The Legend of the Easter Robin, written by Dandi Daley Mackall and illustrated by Richard Cowdrey, renews the wonder and charm of the timeless tale that explores the symbol of the robin and its connection to Easter. We are very fond of Richard Cowdrey and his illustrations from our adventures with Marley the dog and his mischief. Over the last few years, I have really delighted in collecting holiday legends and stories told by Dandi Daley Mackall – the latest of these being The Legend of the Easter Robin. My children need to know that the Lenten and Easter season is about more than just eggs and a bunny. Just as the Advent and Christmas season is about more than Santa Claus and peppermint candy canes. The day that this book arrived, I did not get it hidden fast enough to save it for a surprise. . .
