This week’s post is from kid’s team member Christine Showalter.
Easter is fast approaching! We want to tell you about two great books to help you celebrate the real meaning of Easter with your kids: Easter Stories and Prayers by Kathleen Bostrom and My Read and Rhyme Easter Story by Crystal Bowman and Cindy Kenney. Also, be sure to check in next week for details on an upcoming Easter prize pack giveaway!
This special edition of Little Blessings books includes four books in one: Who is Jesus, Why is there a Cross, What about Heaven, and What is Prayer. Each title is designed to help kids learn more about Jesus and his sacrifice for us. This volume includes a special note from author Kathleen Bostrom on how to help kids understand the meaning of Easter and the good news of Jesus’ resurrection. Full-color art of the adorable characters draws kids in and makes them want to hear the stories over and over again. Scripture references support each answer to the questions so parents can study more.
A great way to remind kids about the real Easter story, My Read and Rhyme Easter Story combines fun rhythm and rhyme with a learn-to-read format to help students learn about God’s Word while they learn to read. Young readers will enjoy the lively text and rhythm as well as the engaging art. The story is written using many of the vocabulary words from the Dolch Sight Word List for young readers. To reinforce reading fluency and build vocabulary skills, the vocabulary words are featured at the beginning of the story. The story is from My Read and Rhyme Bible Storybook.
