Littles Learning Link Up: Focusing on the Cross With 15 Jesus-Centered Books For Resurrection Sunday

Welcome to Littles Learning Link Up. Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (usually toward the beginning of the month)
  • Posts where I share what I have been up to with my preschoolers and/or early elementary children (including occasional highlight posts where I share how we used ideas that have been linked up here on Littles Learning Link Up).
Each week, I will host a link up, where you can share either what you have been up to recently, or old posts that may go with the theme.  Feel free to link up more than one post.

Each week I will continue to feature a couple of posts from those that have been linked up. 

I hope you will continue to share your wonderful posts, and I hope you will find something new to try with your child.

It would be great for everyone to stop by and visit the other linked-up posts as well. Check them out, leave some comments, pin those that interest you. Let's make this a real party and socialize with each other.

It's time for this month's Round Up

This month's Round Up is just a round up of my favorite Resurrection Sunday books that focus on Jesus and the cross.

15 Jesus-Centered Books for Resurrection Sunday

There are quite a few books out there that share the story of Jesus's death and resurrection. Each of them tell the story in a slightly different way. I wanted to share those books that I felt were the most accurate according to the Bible story. Some are just a simple retelling, while others help to explain to the reader what Easter is.

For more ideas to keep your hearts focused on Jesus for Resurrection Sunday, I invite you to check out last year's Focusing on Jesus Resurrection Day Round Up.

Another fun way to focus your hearts on Jesus for Resurrection Sunday is to use Egglo Eggs. I posted a review of these eggs a couple of years ago.

During this review we made

I am lining up guest posts for the new year. If you would be interested writing a guest post for Littles Learning Link Up one of these months, please leave a comment or contact me via my contact info on my About Me page. I will need to have your email address so I can contact you. I am looking for posts that have to do with young children: crafts, activities, foods/snacks, tips, or other ideas. I am open to suggestions.

Now onto:
