The Sparkle Egg
Easter is coming, and Sam loves Easter! But this year, he is upset about a lie he told his parents. Even though he apologized and they forgave him, Sam can’t shake the feeling that he is a bad kid for what he did. Meanwhile, his parents help him make a special Easter craft called a Sparkle Egg. His mom tells him to write anything he feels sorry about or ashamed of on a piece of paper and put it inside his Sparkle Egg.
On Easter morning, when he opens his Sparkle Egg expecting a surprise, Sam finds that it is empty! His parents explain that because Jesus died and rose again, we are forgiven. Like the tomb that first Easter Day, Sam’s egg is empty — and Sam’s wrongdoing is completely forgiven. Once he accepts this forgiveness fully, Sam realizes a truth: we can sparkle and shine with God’s light when we let God’s gift of grace into our hearts.
This touching story will strike a deep chord with readers of all ages, and the Sparkle Egg tradition will help readers and their families grasp the totality of God’s perfect grace. Ages 4-8.
I am really picky about Children’s books and what my kids read. So when I was contacted to do this review I jumped on it! So many Easter stories are about the Easter Bunny and we do not celebrate the cottontail here. All of my kids enjoyed this book, and even though it is geared towards ages 4-8, my 10 year old liked it as well. The story is very well written and has beautiful illustrations! This was such a cute lesson to them and now we have plans of making our own Sparkle Egg for Easter!!! This book is a wonderful book to explain Easter and Forgiveness to your children!
