The first is The Easter Story, by Patricia Pingry. This is an age appropriate book which includes the story of the foot washing which I liked. It was nice to see Birdy make the connection from the book to what we were doing in church.
Birdy enjoyed Gods Love at Easter by Joy Morgan Davis because it has a nice rhyming rhythm to it. For some reason rhyming books are so much more interesting to young children.
I'm going to include this Easter ABC book even though I wasn't thrilled with it. I just wanted to tell you my thoughts on the subject. I have several objections. The first is that I believe ABC books should be phonetically accurate and X for eXcited just doesn't fit the bill (although I know Xs are hard to find), nor does "K-Knowing Christ". I know that "knowing" does start with a K but trying to talk to my 4 year old about that is frustrating. My second complaint is more theological. Q is for Questions of how?or why? fade away like clouds in a bright blue sky. So am I teaching my daughter not to question anything? S is for Searching we will not do, for Christ lives in me and you. I don't know, I guess I just teach my children to question and search. If your faith is not strong enough to handle a few questions then its not very strong. Just my opinion.
