Legend of the Easter Robin by Dandi Daley Mackall




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.

Hardcover; 32 pages

The Legend of the Easter Robin is a children's book.  Easter coming this would be a beautiful book to share with your children or grandchildren.   A little girl who learns a what compassion and faith is from her Grandma and a Robin.  The message is wonderful, but you must realize it is a legend story, therefore if you are a creationist this book might rub on a negative cord.  Read it with your child and point out the message of compassion and faith and don't dwell on how the Robin got his red breast.  Or you could use is for discussing the real way the robin got his red breast.  It does give us the real meaning of Easter through the Robin.  Yes, I would share it with children, but make it a discussion book. You have to keep in mind what a legend is.  It is a story passed down verbally by a group of people.  However, the message of love and faith is real and the illustrations are absolutely awesome, very detailed.  Children of all ages will love this message just in time for Spring.  With that said...I have a copy of the book for giveaway

  1. We celebrate Easter by going to church in brand new outfits which my girls love and after church we put on an Easter egg hunt in our yard for my kids and my nieces and nephews. After that excitement we go in for a great Easter dinner. nancyloring317@gmail.com
