HASH(0x9451f5a0) out of 5 stars Nice reminder that everything is a part of God's plan 18 Mar. 2014
By Books By Corine - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
When I saw the title of this book, “Why Do We Celebrate Easter?”, I knew I had to review it. Why Do We Celebrate Easter? By Mark Sutherland is a great way to share the Easter story with the child in your life. Why Do We Celebrate Easter presents God's plan for our salvation that started at the creation of the world. The book quickly moves from creation and the Fall of Man, to the birth of Jesus, His ministry, the Last Supper, Jesus' death and His glorious Resurrection. While taking you through the story, Sutherland reminds the reader that everything that is happening is “was part of God's plan." This is a simple truth that still gives me comfort as an adult.

There are several other things that I love about this book. This book provides an excellent explanation of a Christian tradition for both children and adults. This book also includes a discussion guide at the end which allows you to delve deeper into the concepts presented. The discussion guide also includes a scripture reference guide. After reading this book, both children and adults will be able to answer the question “Why We Celebrate Easter?”

HASH(0x949991a4) out of 5 stars God's Redemptive Plan Written for the Hearts and Minds of our Little Ones! 22 Feb. 2011
By apatton - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you're looking for a book with very general themes of "new life" that typically come with spring and the American celebration of Easter, you've come to the wrong place.

In "Why Do We Celebrate Easter" we see the picture of God's plan for the redemption of man from the beginning to the end. This beautifully illustrated book emphasizes the sovereignty of God in world history. For young children, who are easily captivated by the dramatic events of the crucifixion and resurrection (and understandably so) it's awesome that the author has added constant reminders of how God's sovereignty was at work in every step, " . . . and this was part of God's plan." In a world that wants to paint our Heavenly Father as an indulgent grandfather who winks at "little" sins and who is devastated, but not in control of world catastrophes, this is a breath of fresh air. While the events of world history have been devastating, it's important that our children learn to trust in our sovereign and omnipotent God. It's all part of His plan. Out of love, He created us. In His sovereignty, He knew that we would sin. As our righteous judge He knew that our sin required punishment. His loving plan satisfied His justice and made a way for us to spend eternity with Him. His plan was named Jesus.

What a blessing to have this concise and beautiful version of God's plan in the form of a book that speaks to the minds of our little ones!

I read this book to my kids on the Kindle Fire - it is best read vertically. The illustrations are rather basic and there are not pictures for every page but my kids were moved by the story of Easter. It was a great way to explain the season and promoted discussion.

HASH(0x949a1174) out of 5 stars Excellent presentation of the purpose of Jesus' death and resurrection 23 Feb. 2011
By J. Fitts - Published on

This is an absolutely lovely presentation of the reason for Easter. You'll not find the Easter Bunny, but you'll find the most lovely, gentle explanation of pure Gospel Truth in this beautifully illustrated and incredibly well-written book. This book is very straight-forward, easy to read and understand, and is absolutely a must-read for our Easter celebrations. In a world that wants to sweep absolutes under the rug in favor of making the facts fit the situation, it's a breath of fresh air for the Christian family.

Not only is this book excellent for our little ones, it's an excellent explanation for adults, parents, grandparents, extended family, and would be an excellent gift for a new Christian. I wish this book was around when my kids were little, but my teenagers now have read and love it. I look forward to them having this book to read to their children, and I look forward to eventually reading it to my grandchildren. The most important legacy I can leave for my children is knowledge of the truth of the Gospel. This book should be required reading for that reason!

this is perfect to teach small children the reason for Easter but I think better suited for 5 and up as my 3 year old daughter lost interest on the pagers that were a little to long to read for her attention span at 3.
