God Gave Us Easter

God Gave Us Easter
Lisa Tawn Bergren

I participated in a blog hop about this book last month. Check out the interview with the author here.

 Little Cub has lots of questions about Easter as she celebrates with her family. Papa explains all about the special day as they walk through nature where they live.

The language used in the book is simple enough that both of my children (4 and 6) were kept interested. They both said they enjoyed the book when I finished. But as a parent, I'm not sure the book is so much about Easter as it is about God in general. It seems to meander back and forth and never really talks about why we celebrate Easter. The kids loved it though and that is really the point. The gorgeous illustrations kept the kids interested as well and spawned quite a few interesting discussions. The illustrations alone are enough to make me keep the book.
In summery, this book was great. I would give it 4.5 stars. I just felt the title was a bit misleading.

I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
