From the Back Cover

What are the treasures in Benjamin's Box? Come along with Benjamin and see… Like all boys and girls, Benjamin is very, very curious. Unlike children of today, however, Benjamin lives during the days of Christ! When Jesus comes to Jerusalem, Benjamin decides to follow Him and find out who He really is. At first, he thinks Jesus is a teacher, then a king. At last, Benjamin learns the good news -- news that every child (and grown-up!) will want to share. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I absolutely LOVED the idea of this book, and when it got here I absolutely loved to read it with the kids. We do bible study daily in our homeschool, and they are learning God's Word and truth. My point? Well... they (my kids) are now relating a child named Benjamin and some of his friends and intertwining it with the real account in the bible, and I'm just not comfortable with that. I like the story, but now when my kids are telling the story of Jesus' death and resurrection, they are now talking about how "...then Judas gave Benjamin silver..." And I'm forced to tell them "Benjamin isn't part of the REAL story...but yes, the other characters are..." I'm just not sure if this will be a part of our reading any longer, just because I cannot expect them to believe the word of God if there is a fictitious character added to it, as in this book. It's causing confusion with the Word. I suppose for us, we'll stick with the original story in the bible.

I reeallllly liked this book... just cannot use it any longer. Perhaps this won't be a problem for anybody else.. but it was for us.

To start the season off, I finally decided to buy Resurrection Eggs for my family and CCD class. Call me lazy because you could surely make these yourself, but I liked having them done for me instead of searching for the pieces for inside the eggs.... Plus the resource book included came in useful.

If you want an awesome resource to go along with the eggs, you need this book (Benjamin's Box). The story is great and matches the eggs perfectly. It is nicely illustrated and each page tells a story to match the item in the egg. The kids seem to enjoy the story and hearing it from the point of view of a little boy. I highly recommend getting this book to compliment the eggs. My kids ages 5 and 8 really enjoy this book. I am also sharing it with my third grade CCD class and they love it too.

I hid the eggs around my house and told my kids to find them but not open them. Once we had all 12 eggs we took turns reading a page from the book and opening the egg that went along with the page.

I used Benjamin's Box to help me create a printable to match the Resurrection Eggs activity. If you search Teaching Heart Mom on Google and then go to Easter you will see it. You can download it free here. It is five pages. The last page (foldable eggs) you will need to print three times on colored card stock. All other pages get printed once on regular paper. My kids enjoyed making the books and we will refer to them through the season.

The only real issue with the book--but it's a big one for Catholics--is that it refers to the Body and Blood of our Lord in the eucharist as being a symbol or picture of Jesus' flesh and blood, rather than his actual flesh and blood, as in Catholic doctrine.

I bought this for my daughter who is 4 1/2. We used the resurrection eggs last year, but I just talked w/ her about what each egg meant. This book is great to use with the eggs now that she is older and tells the story of a little boy who lives in Jerusalem and follows the events of holy week. He picks up an item at each scene that depicts what is happening to Jesus. The box in the story was his grandfather's and had a bit of hay in it from Jesus' birth. At the end he shares the story of Jesus w/ his friends. Well done!

If you are Catholic this book has one sentence in the Last Supper section that refers to the Eucharist as "symbolic." But the book is so great otherwise parents just black out one word and use it. GREAT KIDS BOOK!

I bought this book to go with our new Resurrection Eggs, and for the most part it works well. There are a few times that the book doesn't line up with the eggs (like the color of the egg is different than it is in the book, or there is a plastic donkey in the egg rather than a tuft of donkey fur). But overall, I was pleased with how well the two correspond. However, in the book, Benjamin is actually IN the story of the crucifixion. He is the one who tells Judas that there is silver being offered to whoever betrays Jesus, and subsequently feels extreme guilt when Jesus is crucified. That was a heavy, heavy emotion for little kids, in addition to simply not being Biblical. There are a couple other small things that I thought were too old for my kids, like stating that the piece of leather Benjamin picked up was soaked in Jesus' blood - just a little too graphic for us, and took some quick thinking on my part to change it as I was reading aloud. Unfortunately I don't think we will be using this book with our eggs in the future.

I read this with my 4 year old and she loved it. We picked the days before Easter and she was fascinated as we did a count down to Easter. This is an excellent book to introduce young children to the harder concepts of Easter.

Our family really loves this story about the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The young Jewish boy, Benjamin tells the story of Holy Week from his perspective. As he encounters Jesus through the week, he collects items for his treasure box that his grandfather, a shepard present in Bethlehem at the time of Jesus' birth, had given him. His grandfather had included "hay" from the manger of baby Jesus. The very popular "Resurrection Eggs" can be used with the book, but are not required. This is a must for your Resurrection Day library!
