God Gave Us Easter

I love all of Lisa Tawn Bergren's picture books and so do my kiddos.  We started with God Gave Us You and God Gave Us Love.and were so excited to read God Gave Us Easter.  These books are very sweet and special, the perfect way to introduce the wonderfulness of Jesus to children. 

"God loved us so much he wanted us to always be with him too. That's why God knew he'd need to give us Easter."

Because of the sweet, eternal message the book has, reading God Gave Us Easter to my little ones bonded us even closer together.  The illustrations are beautiful.  The story itself is something special along the lines of Margaret Wise Brown's The Runaway Bunny (which is a classic in children's literature you should definitely read if you haven't already!)  I have to admit, I like this story even better than the famous Miss Brown's because of the inspirational message within its pages.

I highly recommend this book and am so glad I had the opportunity to review it!  Check out the cute video about it and you'll probably fall in love with the series, too.

The wonderful people at Waterbrook Multnomah provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for the purposes of this review.  All views presented are my own.


  1. I love getting books for my boys instead of candy for this holiday. This sounds like one that I am going to add to my list to get this year. :-)

  2. I just now saw this but I am for sure putting it on my must buy list! Thanks for posting it! Krista Steiner
