- What is Easter? by Nancee on 3/30/2014
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.
