bible reading challenge day 71

Hey there! I know Easter isn’t until Mar. 31st-however, I wanted to make sure you had plenty of time for The Story of Easter Book for children from my awesome friends at Tommy Nelson!

the story of Easter children's book review

This precious book is perfect for little ones ages 0-3. My youngest really has enjoyed packing the book around- the plastic handle on the book bind is perfect for little fingers to grasp. “The Story of Easter” has been our naptime book since it arrived and my sweetie has wanted to sleep with it each afternoon.

I love that this is one children’s Easter book that gives the Gospel- the true story that Jesus lived, died and rose from the grave on the third day. As a very simple introduction to The Story of Easter, this little book is perfect to include in Easter baskets.

If you missed yesterday, another very cute Easter resource is up on the Tommy Nelson blog with instructions to create a jelly bean rainbow that shares God’s love.   You can download the printable that includes 4 copies of the poem on 1 8.5×11 sheet by clicking here or on the graphic.

  1. Each year we get a new book for the kids that tells the Easter story–love this one!

  2. I was looking for a special book for Easter for my little ones…this would be perfect!

  3. Thank you Rachel for this wonderful giveaway. I love to use my Make-Your-Own Ressurection Eggs to reinforce the Easter story.

  4. My sweet husband and I are trying to have a baby, and I am already getting excited about building a library for our baby!

  5. Jessica Alana says:

    Would love to have a copy of an Easter book that actually tells the real story of Easter!

  6. Last year we made resurrection rolls, and my very young children got a kick out of rolling Jesus’ body (marshmallow) in the spices (cinnamon and sugar). I don’t know if they really understood, but I hope to make many more traditions as they get older. 🙂

  7. Wonderful! Would love to win a copy 🙂

  8. This would be a wonderful way for my 3 year old to learn about Jesus and his sacrifice for us!

  9. We have always read the Easter Story out of the Bible. Would love this for my 21 month old.

  10. We do not do Easter Baskets from the Easter bunny but we do “Celebration Baskets” and Celebrate the Risen King! It helps my children see meaning in why they are getting a gift and points them more toward Jesus!

  11. We just find fun crafts online to do as a family.

  12. Joanna R. says:

    In the past we used the easter eggs that tell the Easter story.

  13. We hid verses and parts of the Easter story in eggs around the house last year. The kids had to put the story together and then my husband read it to them from the Bible before we did baskets.

  14. Darlene R. says:

    Would love reading this to my grandchildren! Thanks!

  15. My kids love reading and singing. I like to read about the Easter story (from the Bible and books) and sing songs aobut it.

  16. My little one hasn’t arrived yet, but I can’t wait to share the Easter story with him/her

  17. My little guy is only a year old and am looking for great ways to share it with him

  18. My baby is only 4 months old, but I want to go ahead and start collecting books about Jesus for her and start reading them!!
