It’s only February, but Easter will be here soon — March 27 this year!
If you’re like me, you really enjoy putting up Easter decor in the house and seeing its bright colors and spring-like look, that will hopefully soon be replicated outdoors in nature.
One of my favorite parts about Easter is my collection of beautiful Easter books, which I have loved reading to my girls over the years. This year, I have a lovely addition to my Easter library: The Legend of the Easter Robin.
This is a big, colorful book aimed at children aged 4-8. It tells the story of Tressa and her Grandma. Tressa is worried about the robins outside the window, watching over their nestful of eggs. Grandma repeatedly reminds her that God is watching over the robin family.
Here’s a taste of the book:
As Grandma and Tressa work on an Easter egg project, Grandma tells Tressa the legend of the Easter robin. Here, you may want to use caution with younger children — this legend involves the robin taking a thorn from Jesus’ thorn of crown. The thorn pierces the robin’s breast and he bleeds, creating the familiar “robin red breast.” The pictures in this section of the book are in shades of gray, and may be too intense for some younger children. Use your judgment.
Soon, the legend ends, Easter arrives, and the baby robins hatch.
I loved the book’s bright illustrations, and another take on the real Easter story is always welcome.
You can find The Legend of the Easter Robin: An Easter Story of Compassion and Faith (affiliate link) at Amazon or in bookstores. I think it would be a lovely Easter gift for your children, nieces and nephews, grandkids — you name it. And it contains no sugar 🙂
