Easter Story Thoughtfully Told

Christian families will enjoy reading God Gave Us Easter to explain to young children the reason behind the holiday. Papa Bear and Baby Bear take a walk, using nature to emphasize that “out of death, comes life”, just like Jesus’s experience in the Easter story. Papa Bear shows how the Easter symbols (the Easter bunny and Easter eggs), carry a religious meaning. As the reader listens to the story, so does the text emphasize listening and seeing God all around us. Pretty pastel illustrations highlight the story.
