Hope and I love to read. Out of my 4 children, she’s the one with the love of reading. She’s 9 and in 4th grade, but is a bit behind in her reading skills. I read to her anything, from magazines to chapter books. I feel the more she reads, the more she has the opportunity to learn.
We had the opportunity to read this adorable book, The Legend of the Easter Robin. This is a faith based story about Easter and it teaches about compassion and faith. It’s perfect for young children, due to the beautiful illustrations and perfect for older children (I’d say up to 9 or 10) because the story is easy to read.
There were a couple of things about the book that Hope found very fascinating. It’s based on a Pennsylvania Dutch tale and we live in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Dutch are credited for bringing egg coloring to the United States. This was a fun fact.
Over all, we absolutely loved this adorable children’s book.
About the book:
In the center of the nest lay one perfect egg, the color of a spring sky. The father robin sat on a branch nearby, guarding his family. Tressa spotted raccoon tracks below and a blue jay eyeing the nest. “Gran, how are we going to keep the egg safe?” “We’ll have to leave that one to the Creator,” Gran said. Robins have built a nest on the window ledge at Grandmother’s house! Tressa is thrilled―and concerned. What will happen to the sky-blue egg laid by the mother robin? As more eggs appear, Tressa witnesses the daily drama of the robins’ nest and learns how God cares for all creatures. Besides watching the birds, there are Easter eggs to color. And there is a very special story to hear―a tale of long ago about one small bird with a very big heart. How did the robin get its red breast? Tressa is about to find out as Gran tells her the story of the Easter robin. Brought to life with colorful, tender illustrations, The Legend of the Easter Robin will captivate and teach your child about compassion and faith.
