Book Review: "The Legend of the Easter Robin"



Book Description:
This newly illustrated edition of The Legend of the Easter Robin renews the wonder and charm of the original and timeless tale written by Dandi Daley Mackall. With new vibrant artwork from New York Times bestselling illustrator, Richard Cowdrey, this holiday classic is brought to life for a new generation. The Legend of the Easter Robin tells the story of Tressa, whose grandmother reveals to her the story of a small robin who saw Jesus struggling and soared to help him. This Easter tale reminds Christians everywhere how much Jesus sacrificed for us and how much he loves us.

My Review:
I woke up this morning and heard the birds chirping!   Spring is coming!  Tomorrow we are expecting the temperatures to soar into the 60's...this is awesome for Iowa.  It seems fitting that with the warm temps I share this book which will be the perfect book to add to your library for Easter time!   

I was not familiar with the legend of the Easter Robin.   This story originated from the Pennsylvania Dutch, we can also thank them for bringing the egg coloring to the United States.   

Overall this story will use a robin to help share the story of the cross and resurrection.   I don't want to share the super sweet parts of the story and ruin it so I would rather you trust me and order the book and be delighted in it as much as I was.  

When you finish reading the book you will never look at a robin the same again.   The next time you see one you will be thinking not just are robins a sign of spring but of Christ's love for us, his death, and his Resurrection because a birds nest will remind us of the thorn of crowns, the robins red breast will remind us of the suffering Jesus endured as he loved us and the eggs that a robin lays will remind us of new life we have in Christ.



Thank you Zondervan for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
