Why Easter?

As the women ran to tell the disciples what they had seen, Jesus met them. He really was alive!

Does your child (children) know why we celebrate Easter? Does he/she know that not only did Jesus die for our sins, but he also rose from the dead? This charming devotion shares the Good News of Easter, and takes the commercialism out of this holiday celebration.

Why Easter?, written by Barbara Reaoch, and illustrated by Carol McCarty, (the same author and illustrator as Why Christmas?) helps you and your child discover the true meaning of Easter and what Christ’s death and resurrection mean to us.

This 9” x 9” (approximate) softbound book is a 4-week devotional, bringing to light the gift of Jesus and the profound affect His life and death makes in our lives.

Just as in the book Why Christmas? (another fabulous children’s devotional) Why Easter? is neatly organized and guides readers through the following steps:

Bible passage: (example: Read: Luke 2:8-16)
Listen: (A couple paragraphs describing what you’ve read)
Truth: (One-sentence truth, describing theme of day’s devotion)
Discuss: (Discussion questions that help you dig deeper)
Memorize: (Memory passage for the week/verse for the day)
Sing: (Song lyrics provided in the back)

The devotions are thorough and loaded with invaluable life-changing information. The full-page illustrations for each daily passage (reminiscent of my younger Sunday school days) provide crisp visuals, making the experience feel like story-time, rather than lesson-time.

In my opinion, this book can be read anytime of the year, not just Easter time, and makes a wonderful addition to a child’s, parents’, Sunday school teacher’s, or caregiver’s library.
