This is our absolute favorite book to go along with the Resurrection Eggs. We read one page and open the corresponding egg in the nights preceding Easter. I highly recommend the book to go along with the Resurrection Eggs, since the booklet that comes with the eggs is quite small. It is a fiction story, so you will want to supplement this book with actual scripture readings for Easter (I have some suggestions if you need them), so your child will clearly understand what the Bible says along with ...more

Each day goes through one day at a time in the Bible and follow Jesus and His disciples through the whole process from The Lord's Supper to The Resurrection. She LOVED it! Every night she was SO ready to listen to the scriptures I read, see which egg went with it and listen to the stories. It was such an incredible blessing as a parent to watch her grow through this and draw closer to Jesus. It was a sweet time as a family too.

I had heard about this book in book club and already knew the author. This is a short book for kids age 5-10. This will be our new tradition for Easter. I will be going to the Family Christian Bookstore to see about getting this book for next year. What a great way to teach your children about Easter in a way that they can understand. They have eggs that go with the book and depending on how much they are I think they are a neat idea.

We usually just read this in one go, rather than day by day. Today I read it to my 5 year old and it was a fantastic opportunity to explain the meaning of Easter with him as he asked so many questions during the story. It was a bit awkward explaining that the Easter story was true, but the boy was fictional. Definately a book to read each year.

I got this book at a Berean Christian Bookstore a few years ago. It is made to go with a box of a dozen "Resurrection Eggs." I have used it as a Family Night lesson for Easter for several years. I really like it. The eggs make it hands on for the kids and the books makes the story easy to tell without having to make visual aids.

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
We listened to this story read aloud just prior to a church-sponsored egg hunt. The narrative is a bit long for younger children and some of the little ones got quite restless during the story. Still, it's a good book that explains some of the symbology behind the Christian celebration of Easter. We enjoyed listening to this book read to us, and our girls enjoyed the egg hunt even more!

Follow Benjamin's treasure hunt as he follows Jesus in His last days.

Great book alone and even better if you have resurrection eggs to let your kids open. We read one page and open one egg each night beginning 12 days before Easter.

Benjamin goes through one day at a time in the Bible and follows Jesus and his disciples from The Lord's Supper to The Resurrection. I highly recommend this book to go along with the Resurrection Eggs for children ages 5-10 years old.

This was such a creative way to tell the story of Easter, through the eyes and heart of a child. I loved it and so did my kids.
Jennifer

Could be confusing for kids since the main character is fictional.
