What We Liked
I love that this book contained stories that take place throughout history and from around the world. I also like that all the stories are short enough to read one or two before bed. We can also incorporate them into our Easter-themed learning activities, where we usually read a story and create an art craft. It's interesting to see an Easter book sticking to one theme, which is of course the "true meaning" of Easter and the Christian faith, rather than a mixture of faith-based and regular Easter stories. This is a wonderful collection of stories that families will want to read every Easter!
