5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Easter Book! 2 Mar 2007
By Trisha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
This is my two-year-old's favorite Easter book. He enjoys the rhymes and pictures. I like it because our family celebrates all the Easter traditions (egg hunts, the Easter bunny, etc), but I want my children to know that the true meaning of Easter is our Lord's resurrection!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great balance of secular and religious 4 Mar 2006
By S. Tolbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
This book acknowledges and does not condemn the fun involved in the secular celebrations of Easter, including the Easter Bunny, but also smoothly points out that they are not the most important part. Succintly states the religious significance of the holiday. Would be nice to have a little more detail on that, but it summarizes neatly. Illustrations are pleasing. Some of the wording seems to tend the text more to a girl than a boy (ie. wearing a new Easter "dress"), but the pictures show both boys and girls (and changing those particular few words during read-aloud will not interfere with the rhyming). Also mentions an Easter parade and choir, which may not be common to all celebrations. On the whole, quite happy to have found this book. Will be giving to my one-year-old son for Easter, but expect my five-year-old daughter to have some interest as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent explanation of traditions and truth 26 Sep 2007
By L. Cedergren - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
This is a cute book that explains in a kid friendly way that it's okay to believe in the Easter bunny and to like other things about Easter, but that the real reason for Easter is "all about God's Son".

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice book that fully explains the REASON for Easter. 12 May 2009
By Tanya Dennis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
What is Easter?, written by Michelle Medlock Adams, uses simple rhyming verse to question the reason for this holiday. The text asks about bunnies and chocolate, eggs and new clothes; are these what Easter is all about? Halfway through the book, the answers begin. There the author explains that all of these things are nice and fun, but they're not why we celebrate. She tells of Jesus, God's Son, who came to earth "to die for everyone." He had to die in order to save us from our sin. After three days, He rose again. The author goes on to explain that Jesus now sits next to God in Heaven. "He wants to live inside you too and fill you up with love!" The book concludes by reiterating it's point: Easter is all about God's Son.

The illustrations by Amy Wummer are soft and sweet. They feature lots of spring colors and joyful faces.

What I Like: This is one of very few Easter books that actually explains the why of Jesus resurrection: that He died to save us from our sins. It also offers a brief, but important application: that we can invite Jesus to live in us and fill us with His love. Also, the illustrations are really cute.

What I Dislike: The text is a little lame in some spots, and the rhyme isn't always perfect.

Overall Rating: Very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Easter Book Ever! 17 May 2008
By Christy Lindsay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
My mother-in-law gave "What is Easter?" to my daughter two years ago. I held my breath when I read it the first time. Would this book attack my faith in Jesus? I wasn't sure.

I was happily surprised. Michelle Medlock Adams explains what Easter's all about in kid-friendly terms. It's a fun, gentle book that shows it's okay to eat chocolate bunnies on Easter and buy a new outfit, but that's not the point of Easter. Jesus is the point. It's now my favorite children's Easter book. I've even brought it with me to doctor's offices and read it aloud to my kids.
