    I received a copy of SIMON AND THE EASTER MIRACLE: A TRADITIONAL

    I received a copy of SIMON AND THE EASTER MIRACLE: A TRADITIONAL TALE FOR EASTER by Mary Joslin and Anna Luraschi, from Kregel Publications. This is a picture book, perfect to be read around Easter to expand religious discussions with children. It tells a different side of Easter – the point of view of a farmer, who helped Jesus during his crucifixion.

    The farmer went to market to sell his wares, but the guards forced him to abandon his goods in order to help a man who was about to be crucified. The farmer helped Jesus carry his cross to the hill. When the farmer returned to the market, his produce had been ruined. Saddened, he returned home. However, a miracle occurred and his eggs turned into doves. Maybe. I didn’t really understand the ending. The last page explains that spring came quickly, but I never got the sense that the farmer learned anything. Yes, he was helpful, and the doves rewarded him for that. I assume that is the message.

    The book assumes you know enough about Easter to connect the man with the cross to Jesus. I would prefer the story be more straightforward. The pictures are very colorful, and there are many details you can point out with your child. I am passing the book on to my cousin, that she may enjoy it with her daughter at Easter.

    Was it a Miracle? My Review: This is a story about Simon of Cy

    Was it a Miracle?


    My Review: This is a story about Simon of Cyrene who was compelled to help Jesus carry His cross as recorded in the bible.

    The Easter miracle that the author is referring to in this book is Simon being blessed with good crops and a harvest after helping Jesus to carry his cross, and not the resurrection of Christ.

    I wish the author mentioned who was carrying the cross and why, therefore the disconnection in the story. The book was beautifully illustrated by Anna Luraschi.


    FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

    The Easter Miracle

    This is a sharing of a well known Bible passage. Where Simon is on his way to market, and see's a man carrying his cross. The Roman soldiers make him take this man's cross and carry it to the crucifixion site. When he returns to the goods that he had brought to Market, he finds them all broken and scattered. He returns home dejected.
    While sharing this with our 4 and 6 year old, they became a bit lost in the story. As an adult I was familiar with this it, and although the books is beautifully illustrated, it is missing something.
    With Parental discussion you will be able to bring the full impact of this Easter story down to the Child's understanding.

    I was provided with a copy of this book by Kregal, and was not required to give a positive review.
