About the book:
In the center of the nest lay one perfect egg, the color of a spring sky. The father robin sat on a branch nearby, guarding his family. Tressa spotted raccoon tracks below and a blue jay eyeing the nest. “Gran, how are we going to keep the egg safe?” “We’ll have to leave that one to the Creator,” Gran said. Robins have built a nest on the window ledge at Grandmother’s house! Tressa is thrilled―and concerned. What will happen to the sky-blue egg laid by the mother robin? As more eggs appear, Tressa witnesses the daily drama of the robins’ nest and learns how God cares for all creatures. Besides watching the birds, there are Easter eggs to color. And there is a very special story to hear―a tale of long ago about one small bird with a very big heart. How did the robin get its red breast? Tressa is about to find out as Gran tells her the story of the Easter robin. Brought to life with colorful, tender illustrations, The Legend of the Easter Robin will captivate and teach your child about compassion and faith.

My Review:
It's hard to believe that Easter is just around the corner!  It's already time to start planning some Easter activities with the kids, one of which will be reading Easter stories.  We have a few we like and, I'm happy to say, we'll be adding The Legend of the Easter Robin to our Easter reading list!

The Legend of the Easter Robin is a sweet story of a girl, her grandmother, and the stories and traditions that are shared between the generations.  Within this story is the story that the grandmother shares of how the robin got a red breast.  I don't want to give the story away, but the symbolism in it helps us remember Christ's suffering, love for us, and of our new life in Christ.  It's a beautiful story and a wonderful book!

I highly recommend picking up a copy of The Legend of the Easter Robin to share with your young ones this Easter!  It'll be one that your family will cherish for years to come.

Buy it!
"The Legend of the Easter Robin" can be found at the Zondervan website for $16.99.

My Review:
I was pretty excited for the opportunity to review Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids.  I've read the Jesus Calling devotional and was curious how the Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids was worded for kids.  The kids and I have done devotions together every night since they were toddlers, so I was also curious to see what they thought of one that sounded like Jesus was actually talking to them.

I'm happy to report that the Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids has been a big hit!  It seems like the kids listen closer than they've listened to any other devotions.  They also seem to want to discuss the devotion after it's been read more than ever.  It's been very neat and I look forward going through the next 140 days with them too!

I highly recommend picking up a copy of Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids!  It's a great devotional for elementary-aged kids!

Buy it!
The hardcover copy of "Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids" can be purchased at amazon.com for $13.80.  It's also available for Kindle.
