"The Legend of the Sand Dollar"

Book Description from the publisher:

This newly illustrated edition of The Legend of the Sand Dollar renews the wonder and charm of the original and timeless tale written by Chris Auer. With new vibrant artwork from Bad Dog, Marley illustrator, Richard Cowdrey, this holiday classic is brought to life for a new generation. The Legend of the Sand Dollar tells the story of Kerry, as her cousin Jack reveals to her the deeper meaning of Easter hidden within something as small as a sand dollar. This Easter tale reminds everyone everywhere that when Jesus died for us and was resurrected, he promised hope for all.

My Review:
This is a beautiful hardcover book!  I loved it and was so thrilled to share it with my children.  The illustrations are so well-done, vibrant and full of details. The text is short to each page and the layout is ideal for children as they have shorter attention spans.  The text goes along nicely with the illustration on the corresponding page.  This is such an inspirational story and is perfect for this time of year as it is feeling spring-like and Easter will be here shortly.  Kerry learns the meaning of Easter, the real meaning, in a little thing that is found on the beach, a sand dollar.  This is a story that will stick with  my children forever and anyone who reads this book; a sand dollar will never be looked at or thought of in the same way again.  I highly recommend this book, this is a beautiful addition to every home's personal library.
