The Legend of the Easter Robin, by Dandi Daley Mackall, illustrated by Richard Cowdrey

About the Book:

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:

I grew up in the church, and during Vacation Bible School we had a craft that told the legend of the dogwood tree--I think--it was forty years ago!  But, my point is this: legends that surround the Bible are ideal children's stories.

Dandi Daley Mackall is well-known in the publishing world as a fantastic author, with many books for teens and tweens.  "The Legend of the Easter Robin" is a children's book that tells of the legend of the robin's red breast.

What makes this such a sweet story is the immediate application of the lesson in the life of a young girl named Tressa.  She worries and frets over the robins that have built a nest just outside her grandmother's window.

Her grandmother continually urges her to leave the care of the robins to the Creator, and as they prepare their own eggs for Easter, her grandmother tells her the legend of the robin's red breast.  You might know the story, but just in case I'm not going to spoil the book for you.

My thanks to my friends at Zondervan Publishing for my complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.  This is a keeper, my friends.  Highly recommended.

Happy Reading!
