The Legend of the Easter Robin by Dandi Daley Mackall, illustrated by Richard Cowdrey ~ Review and Giveaway

My Review:

When Tressa sees a robin outside her grandmother's house, she worries about the eggs and the chicks inside, but her grandmother reassures her that God will care for the robins. Then she tells Tressa The Legend of the Easter Robin.

A delightfully illustrated children's book, in the bright colors of spring. The story reminded me of Luke 12:6, which tells of God's ever faithful watchkeep over us, and he cares for even the sparrows.
A lovely take on the traditional Dutch legend, great to read with children and teach them of compassion and the care God keeps over 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.

  1. Easter always starts off by getting new outfits. My girls love to do this but my son not so much. After church we have an Easter Egg hunt in the yard for all the kids and then we all have a nice dinner.
