This newly illustrated edition of The Legend of the Easter Robin, written by Dandi Daley Mackall and illustrated by Richard Cowdrey, renews the wonder and charm of the timeless tale that explores the symbol of the robin and its connection to Easter. This children's book tells the story of Tressa, who learns about a small robin that saw Jesus struggling and soared in to help him. This will remind people everywhere how much Jesus sacrificed for us and how much he loves us.
In the center of the nest lay one perfect egg, the color of a spring sky. The father robin sat on a branch nearby, guarding his family. Tressa spotted raccoon tracks below and a blue jay eyeing the nest. “Gran, how are we going to keep the egg safe?” “We’ll have to leave that one to the Creator,” Gran said. Robins have built a nest on the window ledge at Grandmother’s house! Tressa is thrilled―and concerned. What will happen to the sky-blue egg laid by the mother robin? As more eggs appear, Tressa witnesses the daily drama of the robins’ nest and learns how God cares for all creatures. Besides watching the birds, there are Easter eggs to color. And there is a very special story to hear―a tale of long ago about one small bird with a very big heart. How did the robin get its red breast? Tressa is about to find out as Gran tells her the story of the Easter robin. Brought to life with colorful, tender illustrations, The Legend of the Easter Robin will captivate and teach your child about compassion and faith.

The outstanding illustrations of this children's book are breath taking, capturing the emotion of the characters on the page. The vibrant colors are displayed beautifully leaving behind way more than meets the eye. This book while stated for children I found rather pleasing myself. Captivated by the story and loured in by the artwork, my mind and eyes both at work absorbing every detail. As was the same with my daughter when I read and she reads to herself. The little girl Tressa is seemingly the same age as my daughter so you can imagine she was quite intrigued in that note in itself. It is an adorable story showing children just a glimpse of the sacrifice our Lord Jesus Christ has made for us. Teaching them God is always taking care of us!
