I’m always pleased when my toddler son likes new books we buy for him or receive from others. This one, however, I’d say he downright loved! We’ve read it many times over the last few days.
With the classic artwork of a Berenstain Bear book, this board book boasts bright colors and attractive scenes on each page. It is the perfect size and sturdiness for a small child. My family has a few other Berenstain Bear books, but they are paperbacks and typically a little too wordy for my young son’s attention span. In contrast, Easter Blessings has the perfect amount of words.
More significantly than any of these factors, however, is that it carries the most important message a book can deliver – that of Jesus Christ. In simple language, it makes a clear separation of worldly celebrations (i.e., Easter baskets and candy) and the resurrection of Jesus. Although Easter eggs and bunnies are a fun part of the day, the Berenstain parents make sure their children first focus on the greater reason for the holiday by pointing out various blessings in their lives.
I’ll be giving this a 5 out of 5 star rating on Goodreads – a great children’s book!
