St. Louis, MO, March 14, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- “The story of Easter is a powerful story, that too many children never hear,” author Mark Sutherland said. “Why Do We Celebrate Easter? Steps away from the present day celebration of Easter, with its bunnies and candy, and takes children on a journey back before time began—and shows them that God planned Easter a long, long time ago, and why Easter is the most powerful holiday of the year.”
Why Do We Celebrate Easter? was first released in 2011, and in 2012 it has been updated with a parent’s discussion and scripture guide.
“As a parent, I had been looking for an Easter story to use with my four children that captured the amazing truth of Easter, while exciting the imagination and enabling the understanding of my kids,” Sutherland said. “After my kids were clearly into this story when I first read it to them in 2010, and my associate pastor gave me positive feedback about it, I couldn’t help wonder if other parents and grandparents might have use for this story with their children.”
“The story itself is older than time, and shows that God had a plan before He even created the world,” Sutherland said. “This makes the Easter story even more powerful and impactful, and I’m excited to see teachers, parents, grandparents and many others using this book to communicate the amazing Easter story to the children in their lives.”
The paperback version of “Why Do We Celebrate Easter?” is available via Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com and bookstores globally. The eBook version is available via Amazon.com’s Kindle. For more details visit www.easterbook.us.
