The Legend of the Easter Egg
By Lori Walburg

Review by: Lori Plach

     There is no bond like that of a loving brother and sister. Thomas
doesn't fully understand why he was woken out of a deep sleep, because
his sister Lucy is very sick. A faint smile is on his face when he learns
where he will be staying.
        As he helps with cleaning around his hosts, John and Mary
Sonneman's candy store, he learns about Ash Wednesday. Thomas returns one day from trading eggs for Mrs Sonneman covered with mud-filled socks and shoes. All through the season of Lent, he stays with John and Mary attending church with them. Mary isn't upset she just says its part of the beauty of Spring.
        As he hears the story of Jesus' death, he fears that Lucy will
die just as Jesus did. Mary assures him that he will be able to see her
again very soon and gives him his first chocolate egg. It brings up the
question he had asked Lucy for an answer. Lucy never had the opportunity because she fell sick with scarlet fever.
        Mary Sonneman shows her faith and tells Thomas about Christ's
resurrection. She explains that just as chicks break out of their eggs,
Christ burst out of the tomb of death. Easter eggs are meant to remind us that Jesus conquered death and gives us eternal life. Just as Christ was reunited with his disciples on Easter, Thomas is with Lucy again. Thomas is anxious to tell her the story of the Easter egg, his faith in Jesus and hope for a new life.
        The Legend of the Easter Egg is beautifully written. The artistic
illustrations are sensational. It is a wonderful story with a spiritual
meaning geared for children ages 4-8. However, the whole family will
enjoy this beautiful seasonal story.
