Do you have Easter traditions that you share with your family?
Our family are still figuring out some of our traditions. Sometimes we grow out of traditions as our kids get older and we move on to new discoveries.
However one of our traditions is reading Easter stories together. I love finding new stories centered around the gospel to read and have discussions and Q&A.
I received this Easter Stories - Classic Tales For The Holy Season book and I get to read these stories with my children.
They are avid readers, but I still want to cuddle and read to them and surprise them with illustrations.
So far the very first story I read to them incited quite a few questions. I actually really love the first story and it sets the tone that the rest of the book will be a good read. It will be our cuddle time reading sessions.
The first story is called The White Lily - Jane Tyson Clement - Adapted from Frances Jenkins Olcott. It's a beautiful story about a man, a boy and a dog. It shows how important it is for us to show and receive love. And how receiving that love can transform our lives. I know that the background for this story is Jesus giving us the choice of salvation and how it can change our hearts and begin to show outside in our daily lives.
The book has over 20+ stories and I can't wait to read them all with my children!
Everyone who believes Easter is about more than Easter egg hunts will be grateful for this new anthology of short stories that illumine the true meaning of the season. Selected for their spiritual value and literary quality, these classic tales capture the spirit of Holy week and Easter in a way that will captivate readers of all ages.
Parents and grandparents will find that children love to hear these stories read aloud, year after year.
Easter Stories includes time-honored favorites from world-famous storytellers such as C.S. Lewis, Leo Tolstoy, Selma Lagerlof, Oscar Wilde, Elizabeth Goudge, Maxim Gorky, Ruth Sawyer, Anton Chekhov, and Walter Wangerin - as well as many you've never heard before.
Illustrated with original woodcuts.
I love books with short stories like this, and I will definitely recommend this book.
