The Sparkle Egg Easter Book Review

Disclosure: Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing a copy of The Sparkle Egg to facilitate my Easter book review. No additional compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own and those of my family and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation.

The Sparkle EggBefore Christmas, I had the chance to review The Sparkle Box by Jill Hardie. It is a great story to focus on the real reason we celebrate Christmas and offers a great tradition we started with our family and are excited to continue.

When presented with the opportunity to review The Sparkle Egg also by Jill Hardie, I was excited to share it with our family knowing it would focus on the true reason we celebrate Easter. I was excited to learn more about how it offers a symbol of the true promise of Easter and how we can make it a tradition for our family.

In The Sparkle Egg Sam is feeling guilty about a lie he told his parents and can’t seem to shake that feeling even though they told him they forgave him. On Good Friday they make a special Easter craft – the Sparkle Egg. He was told to draw a picture of anything he felt guilty about or ashamed of and place it in the Sparkle Egg.

On Easter morning when he opens his Sparkle Egg it’s empty! This is a reminder that Jesus died for us and rose again, and we are forgiven. Those things are wiped away.

I think this is such a wonderful lesson that kids can really understand. Our kids are ages 7, 6, and 3, and I felt like they all understood the concept. Although we haven’t made our own Sparkle Eggs yet, it is a tradition we will be starting this Easter. I think it is a great way to remember what Jesus did for us and remember we are forgiven. It’s a very real concept for children to understand God’s perfect grace – something even adults struggle with sometimes!

Once again, I am so happy to share something so important with our children in a way that they can understand. I love to share a moment with our children, and I’m excited to make The Sparkle Egg part of our Easter Tradition. How will you #ShareAMoment this Easter?

    I would love to share this idea with my grand children this Easter, hopefully with this beautiful book! I want them to know that Easter isn’t a “bunny and baskets” holiday.

    Every Easter we get the kids an Easter book that shares the true meaning of Easter. I think this would be a wonderful edition to our library. We love to read books together.
