Easter Stories, Classic Tales for the Holy Season

Spring! New beginnings, freshness, beauty, reminders of sacrificial love and promises of better tomorrows.... And, best of all, the celebration of Easter. This collection of tales by some authors with whose work I was acquainted, and others who were new to me, was perfect reading for this season! At 300+pages this book was a bit intimidating. Some of the stories were hard to push through, but many were enjoyable. I felt quite accomplished when I finished. *ahem* The stories did touch my heart, especially The Case of Rachoff and Easter Under A Park Bench

Most if not all of these stories would make great read-alouds for the family. There are some wonderful lessons to be learned here, and who doesn't need to be exposed to more classic literature?

I do think that the cover artwork could have been more imaginative, not quit so generic, but that obviously doesn't affect the readability of the book. 

I give Easter Stories 3 out of 5 stars. 

One of you will win a copy of Easter Stories! Simply comment under this post sharing something you love most about Easter. That's it! Oh, and please share! Contest ends Tuesday, March 24th at 9 p.m.
