Easter Stories: Review



Easter Stories is a collection of short stories written by a variety of authors, such as C.S. Lewis, Leo Tolstoy, and The Brothers Grimm. At 389 pages, it is beefy and makes for a wonderful read-aloud book with stories that have stood the test of time. These stories share the Christian meaning behind Easter in a captivating and engaging way. Illustrated with original woodcuts, and you can't go wrong with Easter Stories: Classic Tales for the Holy Season. We thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and bringing this review to you.



About the book:

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.


Overall:

We really enjoyed this book. I used this with my son as a read-aloud book, bedtime stories, and I even had him read some of the stories and summarize for me. The stories are short, classic, and bring to light the true meaning of Easter. This will definitely be a mainstay in our home, brought out year after year to celebrate the Easter holiday. We LOVE it!
