Here are my learning basket picks for the week leading up to Easter. This selection of books gently, accurately, and engagingly guides my children through the events of the Passion and makes alive for them the glory of the Resurrection. Oh, and I had to throw in a little Tasha Tudor just for some whimsical fun!
A note for my Catholic readers: The story Benjamin’s Box gives a slightly inaccurate depiction of the Last Supper. The text states that Benjamin was confused when Jesus “said the wine was like his blood and would be spilled, and the bread was to be broken like his body.” This is not what Scripture tells us, and it certainly is not what our Faith proclaims. I still think that this story has incredible merit, though, so rather than throw out the baby with the bathwater, I just crossed out a few of words so that our copy reads “the wine was
like his blood and would be spilled, and the bread was to be broken like his body.”
