Disclaimer- I was provided a copy of this book to conduct my review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine. I sure feel blessed to review this awesome Easter Store.
A retelling of the Easter story by Max Lucado with Randy Frazee and Karen Hill, and beautifully illustrated by Fausto, The Easter Story for Children is sure to become a family reading tradition. Children ages 4-7 will follow along with Jesus as he completes his final tasks on the earth: the last meal he shares with his disciples, praying in the garden, the trial before Pontius Pilate, his death on the cross, his resurrection, his ascension, and finally, his gift of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.
My daughter surprised me because she recognized the artwork was the same as a Bible that we have that have the same author/illustrator. :) How cool! The illustrations are detailed with bright colors that leave you looking intensely at each picture.
I love talking to my kids about the true meaning of Easter and this story goes through all the important details that led up to the the Holy Spirit- WOOT! The story is at a level so kids can understand and engage in the story.
Pick up this story today to put in all the kiddos Easter Baskets! :)

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
