Easter Part II

We have so many beautiful books that tell the story of Easter. 

Before we read any of our other books we spend a week or so reading The Lamb by John R. Cross. 


We read one chapter each morning.  We have read this story for the past three years and it tells the story of WHY Jesus came and died. 

It is such a wonderful reminder to me and the children. The book is beautifully illustrated and even has questions at the end of each chapter.  I am an avid book collector of children's books and I don't think I have ever seen a book that explains Easter so perfectly and clearly. 


If you are interested I am sure you can find it in your local Christian bookstore or online at Christianbook.com.
