Product Description

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 4 to 8.

    using a visual (egg) that is no stranger to anyone regardless of the age, I think it is great. The legend of the egg is a story that my father told us when I was a young child (now 70 years old) also using the egg to tell of the Trinity (white, yolk and the shell) all contained in three is such a good example.I think it is great to have this legend as another tool to build interest and understanding to a child! Such a beautiful, moving way to install hope in our children when they are in a world of turmoil where almost anything goes, and so confusing to them. I pray for Authors like Bernardin that they will continue to instill hope and joy into their writings that our children can easily grasp the meanings. Keep up The Great Work.

    This book tells a lie! The real story of the easter egg is how it was dipped in blood in pagan rituals....Please don't lie to your children!

    This is a sweet family story about a little boy learning about faith in Christ. The illustration is WONDERFUL - James Bernardin (same illustrator of Legend of the Candy Cane). I would recommend this book to families with young children to read during the Easter season.
