Why Easter? and Why Christmas? by Barbara Reaoch – Two Children’s Book Reviews
On Easter Sunday, we celebrate the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
On Christmas day, we celebrate the miraculous birth of Jesus and the reason He came into the world.
In a culture where the commercialization of these holidays has flourished, does your child understand the real meaning behind these celebrations?
Equally as important, do you feel equipped to teach your children why the birth and resurrection of Jesus are more significant than the arrival of Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny?
If not, Bible Study Fellowship International’s Director of Children’s Programs, Barbara Reaoch, is here to help!
In her books, Why Easter? and Why Christmas?, Barbara arms you with everything you need to tackle this important educational task!
Why Easter? and Why Christmas? are both 72-page, 9 x 9 illustrated devotionals from Shepherd Press that provide families with a meaningful and Scriptural way to communicate the meaning of Easter and Christmas to their children.
Although these books can be read anytime during the year, they are designed to be used during the 4-week period leading up to each holiday.
Each book contains 28 beautifully illustrated lessons that are divided into several parts:
- Bible Reading
- Discussion Questions
- Memory Verse
- Hymn or Christmas Song (lyrics provided in the back of book)
- Discussion Topic
Because of the interactive nature of the books, they work particularly well as family devotionals. You can use the books each year as part of your family’s holiday tradition and watch how your child’s knowledge and faith grows each year!
Why Easter? and Why Christmas? make a wonderful addition to your family’s library and should hold particular interest to homeschooling parents!
I rate these books 5 out of 5 stars.
