If you are looking for a great book to add to your child’s Easter basket this year, God’s Easter Gifts is it! Written by Brenda Castro this book creatively has your children join siblings Bella and Pablo on their Easter egg hunt after Easter mass. The children were so excited to find candy, toys and goodies and instead found gifts much greater!
In their Easter egg hunt the children found the gifts of Strength, Nature, Friendship, Food, Faith, Family, and most importantly the gift of Life. This adorable book helps bring the true meaning of Easter to your family in such a pure and beautiful way. Our children loved the illustrations including some from their favorite Bible stories of Jesus washing the feet of his disciples, the Last Supper and of the Holy Family. As a parent my favorite part of this book is the questions that accompany at the end of the page with each different gift. These questions truly allow for great discussion with your children to grow in their faith and understand God’s love for each of us.
As we celebrate Easter we want our children to celebrate all of the gifts that God has given to us, especially the gift of His Son, Jesus. The book God’s Easter Gifts is the perfect way to bring this understanding of God’s gifts into our homes!
