Easter is just 2 weeks away! I love finding great books to add to my daughter's collection that help to explain the holidays, such as Easter. This beautiful book, The Flowering Cross, by Beth Ryan, is a perfect pick! The Flowering Cross is a wonderful story with graceful and soft illustrations.
In the story the main character, a 6 year old girl named Katie, befriends a grouchy old neighbor named Jack. Katie always shows love to Jack (reminiscent of the story Polyanna) and eventually they become friends. She then invites Jack to church and shares the love of Christ with him on Easter.
My daughter loved the story and I liked the scripture verses at the end of the pages that corresponded with the text. It is now one of our favorites in our library. It would be perfect in your child's Easter Basket!
