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.

My thoughts:  THE LEGEND OF THE EASTER ROBIN is a very cute story about Easter, robins laying eggs, a loving grandma and a legend I never heard even though my ancestry is Pennsylvania Dutch / Amish. I enjoyed reading the story, and both of my girls, even though they are older than the recommended ages of 4 - 8 both enjoyed it.. There are beautiful pictures through-out.  A great gift for your favorite little girl at Easter. Also good for church libraries and schools.  5 stars.

A Royal Easter Story (The Princess Parables) 

Hardcover

January 26, 2016

by Jeanna Young (Author), Jacqueline Kinney Johnson (Author), 

Omar Aranda (Illustrator)

  • Age Range: 4 - 8 years

It is the most spectacular spring in history. The princesses—Joy, Grace, Faith, Charity, and Hope are busy with preparations for the annual Easter celebration and the castle is alive with activity.
Into the kingdom ride five new friends, young knights, who are as spirited as the princesses. In the new Princess Parables title, A Royal Easter Story, a challenge is presented and the boys and girls decide to race to the neighboring village where the annual Easter celebration and feast will be held. Along the way, the princesses must weather a scary storm and rescue another new friend. But in the end the lesson is clear … trust in the Lord and his love and you can overcome any obstacle.

My thoughts:  A ROYAL EASTER STORY is a beautifully done Easter story about princesses and Easter for girls. There is a Christian message, but it is not first and foremost, it is more about the princesses and finding a lost little girl. I enjoyed reading it, and both my daughters liked it. It is a good 
book for girls who like princesses.  I loved the glittery dresses on the cover. Very cute story. 4 stars.
