One April morning when the air was soft and sweet, a boy and his sister went outside to gather eggs. 'Easter's coming,' the sister said. 'Let's pretend we're hunting Easter eggs.' 'What are Easter eggs?' the boy asked. When Thomas's older sister Lucy falls ill, Thomas goes to live with the Sonnemans in their candy shop. He gets to eat peppermint sticks, fill candy jars, and weigh chocolate on the tippy scales, but he misses Lucy. When Easter comes, Mrs. Sonneman gives Thomas his first chocolate egg and Thomas learns the true meaning behind Easter eggs, the empty tomb, and the hope found in Jesus. This classic story of faith, love, and wonder is sure to be a treasured reminder of the miracle of Easter.
Beautifully done story with emphasis on the true meaning of Christmas. The illustrations are outstanding and very entertaining.
Poor Thomas has to be away from his sister while she is sick, and the Sonnemans keep him busy, while he waits it out. His thoughts aren't far from his sister though. I thought the relationship between these too was beautiful!
This is a must for your Easter!
