One thought on “Lent and Easter Books

  1. It was only recently that I decided to start looking for books to go with our holidays that go beyond the watered-down children’s books of today. I have always found it important to read quality children’s stories to our children, but for some reason just accepted the holiday twaddle that came into our home. I am so excited to enrich our understanding of these different times of celebration through reading good books. Thank you for giving me a place to start with Easter.
