Someone Very Special

There's more to Easter than bunnies, eggs and candy. To help teach toddlers about the season, Someone Very Special (ISBN 0806641541) is a great gift to put in Easter baskets.

Vickie Howie's book is meant to be read aloud to children between 3 and 5 years old. She writes about Jesus and the first Easter in a simple, read-aloud fashion that won't overwhelm. Simple artwork with soft, warm colors accompanies the story.

This book will help your children discover what's so special about Jesus and why we celebrate Easter.

Augsburg Fortress, Publishers, is also releasing a re-covered version of Before and After Easter (ISBN 0806641576) by Debbie Trafton O'Neal. In addition to its seasonal activities, crafts, recipes and worship ideas, the book includes a bonus — a butterfly mobile.
