The Legend of the Easter Robin


The Legend of the Easter Robin: An Easter Story of Compassion and Faith, written by Dandi Daley Mackall and published by Zonderkidz is a charming story for children. Illustrator, Richard Cowdrey brings amazing artwork to the story. 

Tressa is introduced to a robin nesting outside the window of her grandmother's house. As Tressa eagerly watches and worries about the robin eggs that have yet to hatch her grandmother tells Tressa the story of the robin who saw Jesus struggling and flew to help Him. Tressa is very concerned for the nest of eggs and all that can happen to them before they hatch. Her grandmother tells Tressa, "We'll have to leave that one to the Creator." As the days pass Tressa continues to watch over the robins, their nest and the beautiful blue eggs nestled in the nest. Tressa and her grandmother spend special time dying their own eggs in the kitchen as Gran recounts the story of Christ and the legend of the robin. At the end of the book Tressa is overjoyed over the hatching of the eggs and the new lives nestled in the nest. Gran whispers, "God takes car of his creatures."

My children enjoyed this book. This would be the perfect gift to give the child in your life on Easter. With the many distractions and commercialization of Easter it is important that we guide our children as to the real reason that we celebrate Easter. You can purchase this book on Amazon
