My Review:

My children, who are 7 and 8, and I have been enjoying reading this collection of stories at bedtime over the last few weeks.  The kids and I have read many fairy tales before, but each of the stories in this book still amazed us at how 'fantastical' it could be.  The stories truly stretch the imagination, but each also has a deeper meaning that correlates to parts of the 'original' Easter Story.  The stories many times brought about questions from the kids that lead to some great discussions!  It has really been neat for us to now see how each fairy tale relates to Easter and challenges us to think about it as we read together.

I'd highly recommend reading Easter Stories, with kids or by yourself, this Easter Season!  I know I'm looking forward to finishing the rest of the stories with my little ones! :-)

The paperback of Easter Stories can be purchased on amazon.com for $13.32.
