    1 thought on “Easter”

    1. This a very simple nonfiction book about the origins of Easter. It might be too religious to share in a public school read-aloud, but it does fill in the basic history of the holiday among Christians and even mentions the origins of more secular holiday traditions like Easter Eggs and the name of the holiday coming from Eostre, the pagan goddess of Spring. I like this book for its simplicity. It's targeted at younger audiences.

    2. I read Easter by Gail Gibbons. The book is about Easter. I learned that Easter is about the story of Jesus dying and coming back to life. Also, there is an egg-rolling contest at the White House. I like this book because I like to look for Easter eggs. I would like to try an egg-rolling contest too!

    3. A fair treatment of Easter that is accessible to non-Christians. However, it still is a very dated book in terms of illustrations, so be prepared for that. At least it's not as garish as some of the other texts.

    4. This is a religious non-fiction book. It tells the story of Easter and Jesus. The pictures are not great but the story is informative.

    5. I rated this book 5 stars because it is absolutely cute and does a fantastic job explaining Easter traditions.Lexile: AD660LGLE: 2.56 Traits: Ideas
