God Gave Us Easter: A Review

Once again I am reviewing a book for Waterbrook Press' Blogging for Books group.  If you're looking for a children's book to explain Easter and then some to your kids, pick up God Gave Us Easter by Lisa Tawn Bergren 

"On Christmas we remember Jesus' birthday, but on Easter we remember that we get to be with Him forever," Papa Bear tells Little Cub.  

Parents will appreciate the simple approach to Easter that the author takes.  But I was also surprised to find that she also delves into such theology as the root of Jesse and how death comes from life. 

While she references eggs, baskets and bunnies as symbols of Easter,  she ultimately returns to the main focus: God gave us Easter. 

The application comes at the end, where Papa Bear teaches Little Cub to listen for Himself, with his heart, and find out what Jesus has to say to him. With a little conversation after the book is read, parents could easily encourage their kids to ask themselves the same question.
