My Thoughts

 Oh the illustrations in this kids book are beautiful!! While reading this book, I liked the story, but I wasn't so sure that I liked how it told kids a robin got it's red breast by pulling a thorn out of Jesus' crown of thorns. So I kept reading and I enjoyed the fun story about the eggs. I was still confused until I got to the last page and found out that the entire story is an old Pennsylvania Dutch tale and that they were the first to introduce coloring Easter eggs. 

So while this is a cute tale, it certainly doesn't follow the Bible so I think it is up to the adult or parent on what they want to read to their kids.

Four stars.
