Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
The holiday, its symbols, and celebration are related and illustrated with photographs. Easter is a Christian holiday which celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Bible tells of Jesus' life, teachings, and his death on a cross. Three days later he rose from the dead. This became known as Easter Sunday. Easter eggs are a symbol of new life while Easter lilies signify purity. The Easter bunny is also a traditional symbol of new life. "People buy almost as much candy for Easter as they do for Halloween!" The 40 day period before Easter is called Lent. An inset says, "For many Christians, Lent begins on Ash Wednesday." A photo shows a girl with an ash cross on her forehead. Eastern Orthodox Christians often celebrate Easter on a different Sunday. Clear colored photographs enhance the text. There is a table of contents, word list, Web sites, and an index. This is one of the "Buddy Book Holidays" series. This is a simple, clear explanation of the meaning and celebration of Easter.
