The Story of Easter by Aileen Fisher illus by Stefano Vitale

Tomorrow is Easter Sunday.    As of today Lent is pretty much over.    Holy Saturday was the day my Mom would say I could eat chocolate again (as this was what I always seemed to give up for lent).  

The Story of Easter (Trophy Picture Books)

The Story of Easter by Aileen Fisher and illustrated by Stefano Vitale is a great book to share with children about this important Christian holiday.   Aileen Fisher not only describes what Easter Sunday is all about but she delves into the symbols of the holiday, such as Easter Bunnies, Easter Eggs as well as talking about Passover.   She explains how different cultures celebrate this important Christian holiday and it's significance in the world.    I am also partial to the illustrations which Mr Vitale does beautifully.   This is a must have book for a child who celebrates this wonderful holiday.  

Happy Easter!
