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.
