Everyone who believes Easter is about more than bunnies and eggs will be grateful for this new collection of short stories that shed light on the deeper meaning of the season. Selected for their spiritual value and literary quality, these classic tales capture the spirit of Easter in a way that will captivate readers of all ages. Parents and grandparents will find that children love to hear these stories read aloud, year after year.

Easter Stories includes time-honored favorites from world-famous storytellers such as C.S. Lewis, Leo Tolstoy, Selma Lagerlof, Oscar Wilde, Elizabeth Goudge, Maxim Gorky, Ruth Sawyer, and Walter Wangerin – as well as many you’ve never heard before. Illustrated with original woodcuts.

My take on this book:
Easter Stories~ Classic Tales for the Holy Season is a wonderful collection of twenty-seven stories about the true meaning of Easter! Some of the stories date back to the last century and are even translated from other languages, and honestly most of the stories I had never heard of before! The first thing I noticed when I opened this book was that it has a handy table of contents which allowed me to pick and choose which stories I wanted to read.Because this is a compilation of short stories it's perfect for daily reading leading up to the days of Easter. I felt like the black and white illustrations that opened most of the stories really enhanced the book overall. I can just imagine this book becoming part of a family Easter tradition. A book that's perfect for reading to youngsters, but also one that readers of any age will enjoy.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
