I just shared a great story at St. Dominic School and then took it home and shared it with a group of my lady friends from my church. We sat at one of our local coffee houses and after our prayers, I told them about the story I had just used and proceeded to read it out loud to them. They enjoyed the story, the illustrations, and listening to me read. What was this great story–The Story of the Easter Robin written by Dandi Daley Mackall; illustated by Anna Vojtech. For any of you looking for a great religious Easter picture book, this is the one to read. It is the story about Tressa who is worried that the robins nesting on her grandmother’s window ledge will not survive a pre-Easter cold snap. Grandmother tells Tressa the legend behind the robin’s red breast. At the end of the book is a wonderful note from the author telling us about the legend being an old Pennsylvania Dutch tale and how the robin, birds’ nests, Easter eggs, and the robin’s red breast all are connected to Christ and the Easter Story. -Mrs. Woeckel
