Easter Stories: Classic Tales for the Holy Season By C.S. Lewis, Elizabeth Goudge, Leo Tolstoy, Oscar Wilde, Ruth Sawyer, Anton Chekhov, and others

I was thrilled to see a book of Easter stories minus the worldly trappings. This book is a treasury of 27 stories by world famous authors, some dating back as far as the 1800’s. Some were translated from other languages. I found this extremely interesting as I saw the details the eyes of someone from another country.
The book has many different kinds of stories; allegories, fables, parables, and legends. In their own special way, they all focus on Christ and His gift to us. Some of the writings are very serious and somewhat heavy reading, while others are whimsical and fun. Many moral and spiritual examples are presented through the author’s unique writing style, but not all pertain directly to the scriptures.
The description says that the book excellent for reading to children. I do not think most of it would be something younger children would be interested in or understand. An amazing collection of true classics.
I received this book free from Handlebar. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
