Perfect for the Holiday! Easter Stories #review

A Rup Life received product to facilitate this post. This post may contain affiliate links. 

 Easter is one of my favorite times of year.  Not only do we get to celebrate the fact that Jesus lives, but my family gets together for a reunion every Easter Sunday.  I look forward to that special time with family every year!

I received Easter Stores,  which features many short stories, for review.  This book is perfect for the upcoming season. 


 Everyone who believes Easter is about more than Easter egg hunts will be grateful for this new anthology of short stories that illumine the true meaning of the season. Selected for their spiritual value and literary quality, these classic tales capture the spirit of Holy Week and 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, Anton Chekhov, and Walter Wangerin – as well as many you’ve never heard before. Illustrated with original woodcuts.

My Thoughts:

We have been using this book as a read aloud in our home.  So far we've only read a handful but it has been a great conversation piece.  The first story The White Lily was a sweet tale with a deeper meaning of how Christ can change ones life.  I love using stories like this with my bigger kids, because it is really neat to see them grasp an idea and apply it to our faith.

One lucky reader will win a copy of Easter Stories!
