“In this 4–week study, Barbara Reaoch has provided a wonderful resource that helps children understand the reason for Christ’s coming. The selection and discussion of passages is superb, and the questions, memory verses, and hymns fit beautifully with the theme of each lesson. This book is clear and understandable, theologically rich and Scripturally faithful. Any child who studies or is guided through this book will be greatly blessed.”See All

“Since most Evangelicals do not follow the church calendar, Easter often catches us unprepared. Barbara Reaoch comes to our aid with a four-week series of devotionals for parents and children that will increase our sense of joy at easter. These devotionals are well–crafted, theologically sound, and doable. They could be used year after year as a wonderful family tradition.”See All

“To grasp the timeless story of the resurrection is to open one’s heart to a life–change that will last for all of eternity. This is why I am so excited about Why Easter? Using the familiar teaching tools of reading, discussion, singing and mesmerizing, Barbara Reaoch employs every means possible to illuminate Christ's resurrection to thirsty young hearts and minds. The lessons are deep, true, fascinating, and insightful—I heartily recommend this remarkable book to children’s leaders, parents, and teachers; most of all, I recommend Why Easter? to every child!”See All

Westminster Bookstore Note: This book contains cartoon or artistic images of Jesus. There are many people in our constituency who, in a sincere effort to honor the second commandment, refrain from the use of any kind of drawings or pictures of Jesus, even if not intended for a worship context. Out of respect for those who take this position, we have sought to add a note to books in our children’s category which have drawings or depictions of Jesus so that they can factor that into their buying decisions, as they would if they could inspect the books physically.
