Yay! Another adorable book in the Adventures of the Sea Kids series. God’s Easter Miracles, by Lee Ann Mancini, shares an important message through the lovable sea kids of the coralhood.
In Sunday School, at the sea kid church, Miss Linda’s class hunts for special Easter eggs. The ones with crosses on them will allow a sea kid to pick a special prize from the classroom treasure chest. When Paul, a classmate with Autism, has a difficult time finding a cross egg, the teacher hopes a classmate will choose to share one with him.
Through the act of sharing, and also praying for a fellow classmate who is hurt, the sea kids learn the meaning of Easter, and the sacrifices Jesus Christ made for us because he loves us.
This is a cute and meaningful story. The hardcover is durable, the story is easy to follow, and the colorful full-page illustrations are fun. I love how the story uses a diverse group of sea kids. Paul’s Autism is subtlety addressed, revealing a deeper message that God makes each of unique, and loves us all the same.
As with all books in this series, readers are prompted to search for the hidden symbols on each page. In this book, the symbol to find is the Christian fish symbol.
This book is a thoughtful gift for a child or caregiver—especially at Eastertime. Highly recommended.

First line: It was Easter Sunday in the coralhood. All the sea kids and their families arrived at church to give thanks and praise to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
