Library JournalThis latest from Collins is a counterpart to his Stories Behind the Best-Loved Songs of Christmasand Turn Your Radio On. Touching on history with a light hand, Collins briefly explores Easter eggs, the Easter bunny, dressing up for Easter, and, most especially, the stories behind hymns and gospel songs associated with the holiday, treating the likes of Fanny Crosby and Frances Ridley Havergal with respect and candor. His selections run up almost to the present day with "Ten Thousand Angels Cried," which was recorded by LeAnn Rimes. Collins's books are clearly—and effectively—aimed at the gift-book market and are suitable for most collections.
