In The Legend of the Easter Egg, young Thomas learns the deeper meaning behind Easter eggs and the Easter story itself. One April morning, a boy and his older sister go outside to gather eggs. "Let's pretend we're hunting Easter eggs!" Lucy says. "What are Easter eggs?" Thomas wonders. Later, when Lucy falls sick, Thomas goes to stay with John and Mary Sonneman at their candy store. But all the candy he could desire does not cure Thomas's aching heart. Only when Mary Sonneman shares with him the story of Easter does he understand the hope he has- and what he can do about his sister's illness.

Featuring the beloved setting and characters from the best-selling Legend of the Candy Cane, this moving story takes us deeper into the mystery of Christianity. Dramatic illustrations by James Bernardin underscore the chilling fear of separation and death- and the dazzling joy of reunion and new life. Recommended for ages four to eight.

What is Easter? by Nancee on 3/30/14
Rating

This beautiful over-sized hardcover book is an inspirational telling of a favored Easter tradition. The story explains the tradition of the Easter egg. Thomas and Lucy gathered eggs, pretending to hunt for Easter eggs. That night Lucy became very sick with scarlet fever, and Thomas was taken to stay with the Sonneman's at their candy store while Lucy recuperated. During his stay with the Sonneman's he learned about the tradition of the Easter egg and the story of Easter.

This is a timeless story with beautiful, colorful and vivid illustrations that represent a time many years ago. The focus of scarlet fever also leads one to the conclusion that this story is based in the past. It's a sweet and poignant story of a little boy's journey to understanding some confusing and concerning issues. Told with a simple message the story of Easter is rich in representing Christ and the resurrection.
