The Legend of the Easter Robin~review and give-away

Thank you FlyBy Promotions for letting me review this delightful children's book about Easter, the story of Jesus, compassion and faith. I have never heard of the Legend of the Easter Robin, I learned it is an old Pennsylvania Dutch tale. The Legend of the Easter Robin by Dandi Daley Mackall shares a sweet story about a relationship between a grandma and her grandmother, how God cares for His creatures great and small, and preparing for Easter. This year I am excited to use this as one of our books to share about the meaning of Easter with my two children and try making the Easter birds.

A couple quotes in the book that I enjoyed as they reminded me of the love God has for us: "We'll have to leave that one to the Creator" We'll have to trust the one who watches the sparrow and robins." "God takes care of His creatures"  


Now for the exciting news, I have one book to give-away. If you would like an opportunity to win, please comment and let me know by Saturday, February 27, 2016.

From the awesome promotions company:  This newly illustrated edition of The Legend of the Easter Robin renews the wonder and charm of the original and timeless tale written by Dandi Daley Mackall. With new vibrant artwork from New York Times bestselling illustrator, Richard Cowdrey, this holiday classic is brought to life for a new generation. The Legend of the Easter Robin tells the story of Tressa, whose grandmother reveals to her the story of a small robin who saw Jesus struggling and soared to help him. This Easter tale reminds Christians everywhere how much Jesus sacrificed for us and how much he loves us.

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.
