During this time of preparing for Easter, when our little ones are so focused on the Easter Bunny and the treats that he will be bringing, it can sometimes be hard to help them focus on the true meaning of Easter.
A long, long time ago, I was introduced to this little gem of a book that ties the first Easter Bunny into the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus called “The First Easter Bunny”. The little rabbit tells the Easter story through his eyes as he follows Jesus through the events of Holy Week. At the end, it beautifully ties the duty of the Easter Bunny to Jesus.
I was shocked at how expensive it is through Amazon. Of course, it is the hardback version, and I have the paperback version. I found it in a Catholic bookstore in my community, so maybe you can find it in a Christian or Catholic bookstore near you. If you can find it, this book is well worth the money, whether you share it with you class, your Sunday school or CCD class, or your own children.
On a different subject, I just finished my newest resource to help my children remember the most common ways to make the long E sound.
This will be free for the next 48 hours, starting now and ending at 12:00 Midnight on April 1. It will last the duration of the Spring Cleaning sale!
Have a great day and a very happy Easter!
