Reviewer: Janice S. Garey
This is a beautiful bridge type book for children who have been brought up doing Easter Eggs and Egg Hunts. The pictures really highlight the story, and show up nicely on my Smartphone so I know they would be great in other larger formats. The plotting use of mystery and treasure hunts with clues along the way will appeal to children and adults who read to them.
Scripture is seamlessly woven into the story without being overbearing for those who are unfamiliar with it. I feel the approach will give an appreciation for Scripture and it will be a good starting point for introducing the Bible to some children who would not otherwise find reason to engage with it. I really liked the scrolls, but with the Smartphone, I did need a magnifying glass to help read the smaller print on the scroll. I think a child would like to do that, too, for the mystery and hidden factor that requires the special glass for reading what others can not see.
The themes of light and darkness and the love of God who sent Jesus to be in our world are easily understood in this book. I highly recommend this book. Bookfun.org provided this book for their readers for an honest review. I thank them and the author for this new resource that will be helpful in reaching children with the gospel.
Follow Hardy, Anastasia, Pascal and their dog, Zeke, as they discover a glow-rious mystery. Snooping around the attic, they find an intriguing treasure chest containing a curious glowing Easter egg. What is it? What does it do? Only when the kids unite as one do they learn the secret of the egg. They are transported around the world on a wondrous adventure to find the greatest treasure of all. Come along on an egg-straordinary expedition, as the kids search for more glowing Easter eggs in exciting locations. Discover where the eggs lead them.
This was such a cool idea! Kids especially young ones around 3 or 4 years old anxiously look forward to Easter every year but seldom do they truly understand the real reason. To a little 4 year old boy, he can't quite grasp the miracle of what Jesus did on the cross but plastic eggs filled with candy and treats? That's something they understand and also something Darcie Cobos had in mind when she wrote this book. It sheds a whole new light on the Easter story-and gives children a clearer understanding of what Easter is really, truly about. The scripture was really what made the story perfect for little minds.
*Not my favorite*
Honestly, when I read this book description, I was a little skeptical. Fortunately, it was a fabulous book for young and old.
I give Eggcellent adventures...
*My overall thoughts*
Eggcellent Adventures by Darcie Cobos is a sweet adventure story that combines a child's love of easter egg hunts (and candy!) with a more complex, truer understanding of what Easter truly is and plenty of scripture to back it up. Wonderful story for young or old!
*I received this book from bookfun.org and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts were my own and I was not compensated in any other way.
I was impressed by how the author used scripture in the story and made it relevant to children. She used examples that most children should be able to understand. And it was all handled in such a way that the lessons completely blended into the plot of the story. Her conclusion leads the reader to the cross where we find the greatest treasure of all- Jesus.
The Egg-Cellent Easter Adventure could be used as a book for an older sibling to read to a younger brother or sister. Another option might be to read this book together as a family. It is a fun story but also filled with a lot of content. I would suggest adults reading it first before sharing it with their children in preparation for some great discussions. The Egg-Cellent Easter Adventure can be used alone without any other materials as a way to teach children about Easter and instill some positive scriptural lessons. However, I think to get the most from this book, I would recommend also checking out accompanying products sold on their website www.eggloentertainment.com. The book combined with other resources would create a very memorable childhood experience. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
