Easter is so early this year–it really snuck up on me!
Below are our favorite books to read in preparation for Easter…
Benjamin’s Box contains 14 very short readings, telling the Easter story from the point of view of a young Jewish boy. This book is a go-along for Resurrection Eggs, which we’ve never used, but I’ve heard good things about. You could also make your own Resurrection Eggs. We just read the book, although every year I think about making our own little items to go along with each day’s reading.
The Tale of Three Trees is a beautiful folktale, telling a tale of three trees and what each of them wishes to be when they grow up. What they actually end up becoming is both the same and different from what they wished, and each plays a part in the Easter story.
The Jesus Storybook Bible is one of our favorite children’s storybook Bibles! We like to read about the Passion of Christ from this Bible in the days leading up to Easter.
The Story of Easter is one we haven’t read, but it looks good. Have you read it?
