Overview

Jesus came to teach people how to love. He came to heal us from everything that hurts us, and to fill our lives with joy, hope, forgiveness, and peace. And the more you get to know Jesus, the more you’ll discover that this can be your life too.

Easter Love Letters from God, written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Sophie Allsopp, guides children and families through Holy Week with seven beautifully illustrated Bible stories. Following each story the child will find his or her own letter from God. Children will love the excitement of opening the letters and parents will love how the letters elaborate on the Bible stories being told. Each message gives the child a sense of wonder as they discover what happened leading up to Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday. A very special Bible verse, entitled God’s Wonderful Words to You will accompany each story and letter. Much more than a memory verse, each carefully chosen promise will be God’s very own personal words of love, encouragement, and hope.

For the Rest of the Story… If you are looking for a book about Easter than contains something more than chocolate rabbits and hard-boiled eggs, Easter Love Letters from God is for you. Despite the lack of candy, this volume is sure to become a well-loved favorite . This great book is written for young children to explain the meaning of Holy Week, and help them understand the sacrifice Jesus made for all mankind. The underlying theme of the love God has for all of us, and the way Jesus demonstrated that love is clearly shown throughout the book. Ms. Nellist has an enchanting style of writing Bible stories; she does it in a very understandable and memorable way. Fun things are included, too. This very child friendly book includes “love letters” --flaps that can be moved to show letters from God written for the reader. This unique addition to the story is sure to bring smiles to the faces of the little ones viewing the book. Each page of the book has colorful illustrations that blend with the written story making it even more powerful. Additionally, a free download that goes with the book can be obtained by going to Glenys Nellist’s website and searching under, An Invitation to Walk Through Holy Week With Me. It contains a scripture reading plan, daily prayers, conversation starters, and free activities. Often Bible stories are told in a way that will appeal to adult ears. This narrative is written in a way that will make the story understandable for little children. The author is truly fulfilling Jesus’ advice in Luke to "let the little children come to me, and don't stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” I highly recommend this 5-star book especially during the Easter season, but it is a great book to read with, or for children!

“Each story leading up to Jesus’ glorious resurrection on Easter Sunday includes God’s very own words of love, encouragement, and hope,” the inside flap jacket cover states in Glenys Nellist’s children’s book, Easter Love Letters from God: Bible Stories. ~ What ~ Part of the Love Letters from God series, this unnumbered oversized thirty-two-page hardbound with a cover jacket targets children four to eight years old who enjoy Easter stories and supposed personal letters from God. Using the New International Reader’s Version of the Holy Bible, seven stories regarding Jesus death, burial, and resurrection are included. It would best be read out loud to beginner readers due to some of the complicated three syllable words. This charming book has seven Bible stories that cover four pages each. Chapters are titled King of Kings, What Love Looks Like, The Secret Supper, The Gloomy Garden, The Darkest Day, The Quiet Cave, and the Super Surprise. Each story references the Bible verses used, contains a short story with a written out verse of God’s perfect promise, and a fold-out letter to the reader from God with a line to write in the child’s name. The ending has a larger fold-out card to Jesus with sixteen blank lines to fill out and a place for the writer’s signature. The colored illustrations are detailed and interesting, covering the full pages. ~ Why ~ Focusing on the Biblical aspect of Easter, this book will keep the attention of young ones. My favorite was the story of Christ being put in the tomb, but no one knew what was happening inside it. The letter from God asks if the reader likes surprises and how He was creating the biggest surprise ever: Jesus’s resurrection. Isaiah 43:19 is written out. ~ Why Not ~ Those who do not believe in God may not be interested in Easter stories about Christ’s death or resurrection. Some children’s thinking process may not be advanced for writing a letter at the ending. Others may wish there were more than seven letters from God added. ~ Wish ~ I love the format of this book with its added love letters. However, I did have a problem that it missed the true meaning of Easter: Jesus died on the cross for all of our sins. Granted God’s immense love is often mentioned, but there is no reference to Christ shedding His blood on the cross for each of us. I also wish all pronouns of God and Jesus were capitalized for reverence. ~ Want ~ If your child wants an interactive book of seven stories of Jesus’s last days before being crucified and His resurrection with letters written to them from God and a place to respond, this will make a good choice. Thanks to Book Look Bloggers for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.

We just added this sweet Easter book to our home library. We are familiar with this series and all really enjoyed the story. I love that there are Bible verses and passages noted throughout and that the real Easter story is written in such a compelling way. I teared up as I was reading this to my children. It captures the heavy emotions in a way that is interesting and relatable to kids. The pages are filled with beautiful illustrations that perfectly help tell the Easter story. The book can be personalized for your children and each letter has a line where you can add a child's name. Easter Love Letters would be great for young and older children. There is so much to talk about and discuss on every page. The letters are securely attached to the book and seem like they will be very durable. This book would be the perfect addition to any Easter basket or gift for children around Easter time. We highly recommend it!

Steeped in scripture, Nellist has crafted a book that helps us share the story of Easter in an age-appropriate way. Easter Love Letters from God takes you from the Israelites shouting Hosana as Jesus rides in on a donkey to the super surprise of the resurrection. My daughter and I sat down and read the book in one sitting. But this collection of seven Bible stories is also perfect to use as part of family devotions. Each story is based on scripture and told in language that even my little 3-year-old could understand. As we walked through the pages, Sarabeth was able to put back into words what I had just read to her. I think my daughter's favorite part of the story is the letter from God. At the end of each story, Nellist has crafted a letter to be read to your child as though it's from God. Each letter helps your child understand how the story relates to them. Each time my daughter would lift the flap on the letter, and I began with "Dear Sarabeth" she would squeal in delight and say "It's a letter for me?!?" As the story in the book progresses, the last letter gives your child an opportunity to respond to God in faith. It's a great way to share the gospel story with your child, and then give them a chance to say whether or not they want to live their life for God. The last page of the book gives your child the space to write their own letter to God. It's a great way to help your child learn how to respond to what God is doing in their life as they learn to relate to the stories in the Bible. I received a copy of this book from the author. This review is my own, honest opinion.

I have been a big fan of Glenys Nellist for a long time, so when I saw her new book, I was very excited to check it out! And I most definitely was not disappointed. Leading little ones through Holy Week from the Triumphal Entry to the Resurrection, Nellist explains Easter in a way that little minds will understand. The illustrations are colorful and eye-catching, and each story contains a love letter from God that little ones will love opening and reading. This is a GREAT tool for teaching children about Easter, and I'm so glad it's been added to my children's library!!
