I really don't have a library of Easter books, so I was very thankful when Carrie wrote this post. We ended up reading these two books, and they were fantastic. Carrie describes them perfectly.
One thing I really like about the Happy Day Easter books is that they connect the traditional festivities we participate in to the true meaning of Easter. I liked this series so much that I bought two more in it...
This book portrays the Biblical Easter story and on each page there are 3-4 questions to engage the child's thought processes. These books have a "reader" type format, so they are simple enough for my kindergartner to read on his own and yet present real Biblical truth.
The bookstore I was at also sold the coloring books in the series. The exact same words are on each page above or below the picture. I bought the coloring book version of this last book. This gives my 3 yr old a way to interact with the story more personally. Plus, it was half the price!
