Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Legends of Easter Treasury Inspirational Stories of Faith and Hope By Dandi Daley Mackall, Lori Walburg, Chris Auer is a beautiful new treasury that would make a beautiful gift for any child at Eastertime. This full color treasury features three complete stand alone stories: The Easter Egg, The Legend of the Easter Robin and The Legend of the Sand Dollar. The bright, detailed art sets this quality hardcover book from other story books. The traditional art will appeal to parents and grandparents alike, as they reminisce to an earlier time period of traditional values. The only thing to consider s that multicultural families and families of other ethnicities may feel alienated by the art that depicts exclusively depicts fair skinned, blond, blue eyed children and their families. Before any reader takes offense, I simply state this as an objective observation. While many readers will not find offence at seeing art featuring fair skinned children with light hair, in this modern multicultural society, its worth a mention because those who order this book online may not have the opportunity to see the interior art as the picturesque cover depicting a serene spring view of a church gives little hint to the art inside. If you take a look at the back cover, there is a depiction of the three individual covers for each of the stories which reflects a sampling of the art. In this modern society, the publishers may wish to consider art work to feature a more multicultural perspective to reflect the multicultural makeup of today's society. As a blogger I received a copy of this book for the purpose of writing this review.
