Easter is a celebration of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. But how many children know why Jesus died and came to life again? This illustrated devotional contains 28 lessons--one for each day of the four weeks leading up to Easter--In a short, focused format designed to help parents show the Christ of Easter to their children.
"To grasp the timeless story of the resurrection is to open up one's heart to a life-change that will last for all eternity. This is why I am so excited about Why Easter? Using the familiar teaching tools of reading, discussion, singing and memorizing, Barbara Reaoch employs every means possible to illuminate Christ's resurrection to thirsty young hearts and minds. The lessons are deep, true, fascinating, and insightful--I heartily recommend this remarkable book to children's leaders, parents, and teachers; most of all, I recommend Why Easter? to every child!"

"Why Christmas? provides and attractive, joyous, and rich overview of the meaning of the coming of Christ into the world.

To use this book with your children is to give them one of the best Christmas gifts they could ever receive."
