Now that we have small children, it’s becoming way too easy to focus on the worldly parts of holidays and lose the real reason we celebrate things like Easter and Christmas. One way we’re keeping our kids focused on Easter this year is with two fun books that help keep our eyes on Jesus and what He did for us.
Our current favorite book is The Story of Easter. This sturdy board book was a hit with both girls from its colorful, fun artwork to the lyrical rhymes that helped tell the story of Jesus’ last days as well as His burial and resurrection. I’ve struggled with how much you tell a four year old about the Easter story and this book does a good job of explaining it without being too much for a child. Because truly, it’s a pretty graphic story.
The second book we’ve been reading a lot recently is An Easter Prayer by Amy Parker. This book walks the kids through being thankful to God for all that spring brings: new life, warmer weather, and Easter eggs, but the best thing is Jesus. It helps kids know that all the Easter festivities are good and fun, but to remember the true focus of the season.
Both books would make great additions to Easter baskets this Sunday!
Speaking of great additions to Easter baskets, how about throwing in a little something for Mama too? This giveaway includes The Story of Easter and an Easter coloring book for your little one while Mommy can enjoy a little downtime with some chocolate, nail polish (Sinful Colors in Easy Going), and a cute CGI Daughters clutch.
A runner-up winner will receive a copy of An Easter Prayer by Amy Parker. Good luck!
